Due to reduced public transport capacity and the need for social distancing, motorcycles and electric-assist bicycles are becoming a more popular choice these days.
Peugeot’s offerings consist of the Legend (neo-retro), City, Road, Trekking, and Mountain. Each one has a unique solution for propulsion and battery storage.
The Legend line features Neo-Retro style combined with a 400 Wh battery with a range of up to 70 kilometers. It comes in white, orange, or blue.
The City line has more modern styling that’s style at home in urban environments. It features a 300 Wh battery with a range of up to 80 kilometers.
The Road line stretches that range with a 500 Wh battery capable of traveling up to 125 kilometers.
The Trekking line makes use of the Bosch PowerTube battery. This allows it to integrate subtly into the frame. The PowerTube is a 400 Wh battery with a range of up to 110 kilometers.
The most extreme is the Mountain bike line. It’s designed to tackle steep gradients with its powerful motor. It has a Bosch PowerTube 400 Wh battery with a range of up to 60 kilometers.
All of the models come in a variety of colors as well as frame sizes ( S, M, L, or XL) and can be ordered from their online store. Prices start at €1,349 (PhP75,500) and go all the way up to €2,699 (PhP151,000).
For now the Peugeot electric bicycles are only available in select dealers, mainly in France. Yet with the popularity of electric bicycles picking up, maybe it’s something Peugeot Philippines should consider.
