That's cool, but the low top speed is kind of surprising and disappointing.  My R Martin EVD only has a 3 kW motor but a top speed of 50 mph.  The Peugeot has a 4 kW motor and top speed of 28 mph?  What's up with that?

Still, good to have a major automaker manufacturing an electric scooter.  I wonder how much it will cost.
