Will an Electra Cruiser 7D give me a good enough workout?

I decided on the Electra Cruiser 7D, 7 speed because based on my research it will handle my weight without modifications, I really want to sit upright, the price point is nice and honestly, I LOVE the way it looks so much. It makes me happy just thinking about this cute little bike. So I'm not really looking to be talked into something different. But I do want to know if I'm going to get a good workout out of it. As much as I would just walking around the neighborhood or on a treadmill? I know it won't be like doing a 60 min cardio class like I did pre-kid. But if it'll be equal to or greater than walking around the block for 45 min a day, I'm good with that. The LBS guy (who was so nice) mentioned how this wouldn't be the bike for me if I wanted to start doing 10 miles a day...but why? what happens at 10 miles, do the wheels fly off? My goal is to work up to 45 min/day but that could take a bit as I haven't worked out in awhile.
