PEUGEOT unveils its new electric mountain bike with in-frame battery

PEUGEOT has unveiled its new electric mountain bike with in-frame battery. The new eM02 FS Powertube mountain bike is the precursor of the next generation of its in-frame eBikes. The compact battery built into the frame gives it a flowing, integrated & streamlined style. It will be presented alongside the PEUGEOT RIFTER 4X4 CONCEPT to be unveiled at the Geneva Motor Show.


The front and rear suspension and 27.5" wheels of the eM02 FS Powertube (e=electric M=Mountain, 02=mid range, FS=Full Suspension) guarantee comfort and make traversing terrain easy. The motor and 500 Wh Bosch battery enable a range of up to 125 kilometers. Available in two models from €4,599, this electric mountain bike will be available in March 2018.

The new eM02 FS Powertube builds on the success of PEUGEOT’s eMountain bikes, fitted with Bosch Lithium-ion batteries and the Performance CX motor. It also heralds the future of PEUGEOT eBikes. The new compact BOSCH battery is optimally located in the frames down tube to ensure the bike’s balance thanks to a low centre of gravity. It makes the battery easy to change and protects it from the dirt that is unavoidable during all-terrain use. The integrated components gives the bike a dynamic, flowing style.

It is a pity it is so expensive.
They should make an urban / suburban version without suspension which would make it lighter and cheaper.
Also, I wonder what speed they are going at to achieve a range of 125km from a 500wH battery.
Maybe they are 125 Fairy Km or the driver wears a cycle racing suit.

What is "Green" about a motorized vehicle replacing a human-powered vehicle? If ridden on paved bike paths or roadways, they may reduce automobile use. If used on natural-surface recreational trails, they do not replace motorcycle use (motorcycles are not allowed on those trails). They are replacing human-powered mountain bikes and introducing a new form of motorized recreation. Hardly a "green" move.


Thanks for the helpful review. I have long been expecting something like this. Yes, the price is not small, but for a professional cyclist, it is worth it. Also, you can see more info here to find more budget bike models, also with a lightweight material or folding structure. And for starters, in general, you can buy a regular road inexpensive bike
