The hybrid electric bicycle lane is due to get more populated as Peugeot wheels out its AE21 hybrid ebike.

Given that Peugeot started manufacturing bicycles all the way back in the 19th century, we'd hope it knows what it’s doing. So far, the signs look promising – the AE21 ebike features a built-in laptop bag holder, ABUS Bordo folding lock storage and a lithium-ion battery all crammed into its Clever Case frame.

More subtle design smarts include folding pedals and handlebars that let the bike sit flat against walls. There will be two versions: one with a front wheel driven hub motor and one with a belt-drive.

The AE21 will also come with two different battery options, both of which can be removed for charging if needs be. No pricing and release date yet though. Here's hoping you can use your iPhone as a dashboard like on this electric scooter.
