Already well established in the segment of electric bikes, Peugeot has intensified its efforts by lifting the veil on a series of eight two-wheeled electrified both adapted to the road and the mountain.
At Peugeot, electric remains at the heart of its strategy in the short, medium and long term. That's why the lion brand does not hesitate to invest in this future segment that is supposed to replace today's thermal cars. With the Peugeot e208, the French group has hit hard at the Geneva Motor Show 2019. And to continue in this positive dynamic, the tricolor company has also focused its efforts on its offer of electric bikes.
Bosch to the rescue
The latter has also taken a different dimension compared to the press release issued by one of the jewels of the country: eight new bikes equipped with an electric motor join its catalog of products. All, without exception, have built-in 500W Bosch battery in the frame, just like a Bosch Active Line Plus engine. A partnership that recalls the one with Trek Bikes for his Domane +.
Of the eight models, six of them belong to the eT01 series, considered as high-end. Below, a presentation of their characteristics in list form:
