The urban electrically-assisted bike, the Peugeot eLC01 (e=electric, L=Legend, C= City, 01= top-of-the-range) is now available with 26-inch wheels, in addition to the current 24-inch model. Suitable for all riders, it provides more comfort.

Efficient with an eight-speed transmission and a 400 kW motor, it has a range of up to 43 miles and its brake discs keep it safe and secure. Compact, easy to handle and agile around the city, it is comfortable with its cushioned saddle and practical, with its Racktime luggage rack for fast bag attachment.

Its timeless and distinctive design is signed by Peugeot Design Lab. It draws on more than 130 years of Peugeot Cycles history. The architecture of its single-stay frame, which incorporates the rear chain & seat stays into a luggage rack, is directly inspired by the legendary Peugeot’s from the 1950s, 1960s and 1970s.
