Unknown Model of Peugeot MTB

I have found a vintage Peugeot on CL and cannot determine the model. I have texted the seller and the only information she could provide is that it was assembled in Canada and on the top tube it says "aluminium". Can anyone help me here?

No lugs, toothpaste welds, likely to be a mid-1990s. Catalogs are missing at bikeboompeugeot.com from those years, but try bikepedia.

It's worth $50 anyway.

The subject bicycle has what appears to be V-brakes and resin pedals. V-brakes didn't come out until 1996 and then only on top end bicycles, which would be unlikely to have resin pedals. V-brake technology had trickled down to the Alvio and Acera groups by 1999 and resin pedals were commonly spec'd at his level. Consequently, the bicycle is most likely circa 1999-2001.

During this period, Peugeot's lowest aluminum framed models were the Grey Stone and Energy. Both were equipped with a mix of Acera and Altus. Pending more information and/or better pictures, these would appear to be the best candidates. Based on the finish alone, a Grey Stone would be a tempting choice. Regardless, $50 is a good deal, barring major issues.

It is probably an Energy. The seller sent me a picture of the cockpit and I saw "Energy" on the grip shifter.
