The Paris Motor Show has just kicked off today, and we are here to cover the most interesting new EVs on display. That includes everything from electric cars and trucks to motorcycles and bicycles. Peugeot is showing off the latter with a series of new electric bicycles running the gambit on both price and style.
Peugeot electric mountain bicycles
Peugeot debuted two of their new electric mountain bicycles today.
The eMO2 FS Powertube SLX11 and GX11 both feature full suspension, Bosch Performance mid-drive motors and Bosch Powertube batteries that are mounted inside the frame for a stealthy appearance.
Both models are well equipped, though the SLX11 is the more affordable of the pair at €4,199. The SLX11 features more budget-friendly components including shocks from Suntour.
The GX11 is the higher end version. It is loaded with higher performance components including RockShox suspension. However, the GX11 is pricier at €4,599.
Peugeot touring electric bicycles
Peugeot also showed off a pair of touring electric bicycles. The ET01 features a Bosch mid-drive paired with a belt drive for extra quiet and low maintenance riding. That belt drive powers an Enviolo (what used to be Nuvinci) internally geared continuously variable transmission rear hub.
Hydraulic disc brakes, internally routed cables and wiring, and integrated lights round out some of the nicer features on the bike.
The ET01 retails for €3,699. For an extra €300, you can upgrade to the full suspension version of the bike, the ET01 FS. However, you’ll have to give up the nice belt drive, as the ET01 FS returns to a chain driving Bosch mid-drive setup.
Peugeot’s new electric gravel bike
If electric gravel bicycles are more your thing, you’ll want to check out Peugeot’s brand new ER01. This one isn’t a minor update. Rather, it’s a brand new design. The ER01 is not available yet, but should be coming out this Fall.
This flat bar e-bike features a sturdier frame than most street e-bikes and hybrid style tires that are suited to crossing from the street to the trail and back again.
A Bosch mid-drive and Powertube battery round out the electronics on the ER01, which will be available for €3,599 as soon as it is released later this year.
The ER01 is similar in concept to the Yamaha Wabash electric gravel bike that we saw last month at Interbike.
Peugeot’s affordable retro electric bicycle
For those that like looking at these Peugeot electric bicycles but find them a bit too rich for your blood, look no further than Peugeot’s retro-styled ELC01.
The ELC01 is the affordable member of Peugeot’s electric bicycle family. It features a rear rack mounted battery and front mounted Bafang hub motor.
Despite its low €1,399 entry price, it still packs some nice features, such as hydraulic disc brakes, integrated lighting and a charmingly retro sounding bell. The chromed accents and combination of classic and modern Peugeot logos give the bike its signature mix of retro and modern feel. And if the bright orange is not your style, don’t fret. You can get it in more muted colors too.
Peugeot electric scooter
Lastly, Peugeot also showed off their funky-looking eKick electric scooter.
Electric kick-scooters have actually become quite popular in cities due to fast-growing electric scooter rental companies.
The eKick is Peugeot’s take on electric scooters, and is designed to travel at speeds up to 25 km/h (15.5 mph) with a range of up to 12 km (7.5 mi). The scooter retails for €899.
That one might be a tough sell for Peugeot, as there are a number of competing scooters that travel twice as far for less than $460.
