Peugeot is introducing the eU01s, a 45 km/h (28 mph) electric bicycle. Bridging the gap between traditional 25 km/h electric bicycles and scooters, the eU01s offers the rider an agile and rapid cross-town journey. The eU01s will be presented at the Paris Motor Show and launched at the end of 2016.

Peugeot has made urban mobility a core priority with several new innovations being introduced this year: the eC01 electrically-assisted bicycle with automatic transmission, the e-Kick electrically-assisted scooter and the eF01 electrically-assisted folding bicycle.
The eU01s comes under the moped category requiring insurance, registration and a helmet.
A Bosch Performance Line electric motor combines with a 400 or 500 Wh lithium-ion battery to offer a range of 75 or 95 kilometers (47 or 59 miles). The eU01s has optimized safety and reliability thanks to its 180 mm hydraulic disk brakes, and its maintenance-free belt transmission.
The eU01s is compatible with the BOSCH Nyon system. This optionally available on-board computer with its 4.3-inch screen manages pedal assistance configuration and offers multiple functionality: 3-D navigation, sports coaching and smartphone connectivity.
The eU01s will be launched in December 2016 through the CYCLEUROPE network and selected PEUGEOT dealers.
