► Peugeot launches electric bike
► New package on 5008 SUV
► e-Bike has charge for 18-25 miles
Need to assuage your SUV conscience? Peugeot has just the thing, with the launch of a new option on its 5008 - an electric folding bike that fits neatly in the seven-seater’s boot.
The eF01 Electric Bike is now on sale at UK dealers and slots in the back of the Peugeot 5008 crossover, offering those who may struggle to park near work a transport option over the last mile of their journey. The price? A chunky £1799, which may limit its appeal somewhat.
The aluminum-framed, foldaway bike weighs 18.6kg, is claimed to be easy to manoeuvre around town and has enough charge to ride 18-25 miles. With a top speed of 12.5mph, it should nip around town easily enough and is certainly quicker than walking.
Why Peugeot is launching an e-bike option on the 5008
In a survey of 10,000 motorists, 36% said they worry about being unable to park within a mile of the workplace. This problem is especially bad in London with 46% of drivers concerned about parking.
That’s why Peugeot has launched the 5008’s electric bicycle option. It charges on a mobile docking station - that's another £395 - in just 60 minutes and can easily be folded and unfolded in less than 10 seconds, according to the car maker.
