Peugeot Cycles have expanded their e-bike range with the new eC01 CrossOver, a hybrid e-bike with fatter tyres for rougher terrain.
We’ve reported on a couple of Peugeot e-bikes over the years. We reviewed the somewhat underwhelming AE21 way back in 2016 and noted an updated version of their top-end e-road model, the eR02, a year or so ago – but the firm’s added quite a few bikes to its roster in recent times.
Electrek reported on a whole series of ‘crossover’ bikes with Bosch mid-motors last year and the French firm’s just added the eC01.
Combining an upright riding position with 57mm Schwalbe Hurricane tyres and front suspension, the aim seems to have been to create a comfortable, practical bike that can tackle tougher riding.
It features a Bosch Performance CX mid-drive motor, a 10-speed Shimano Deore transmission and a hefty 500Wh battery that is concealed within the frame.
It also has Shimano MT201 hydraulic disc brakes, front and rear lights, mudguards and a rear rack.
It’s priced at €3,199. More details on the website.
