Peugeot launches last-mile commuter solution
Peugeot has made its first foray into the folding e-bike market as it looks to provide a solution for drivers tackling ‘last-mile’ commute issues.
Aimed at a claimed growing number of drivers who are unable to park within a mile of their workplace, the eF01 electric bike uses an aluminium frame to bring about a light weight of 18.6kg and is fitted with a battery and motor to give it a top speed of 12.5mph and a range of between 18 and 25 miles.
The bike – which can be folded and unfolded in less than 10 seconds according to Peugeot – can fit in the boot of the carmaker’s 5008 SUV along with a mobile charging dock that enables charging in 60 minutes, providing an all-in-one solution.
Gilles Vidal, director of Peugeot Design, said: “We felt the Peugeot 5008 SUV was the perfect vehicle to pair with our first electrically assisted folding bike. Together, the 5008 SUV and eF01 electric bike combine two modes of transport to create a complete door-to-door solution, no matter what your destination might be.”
