Fiat Chrysler Automobiles said Tuesday it plans to build three-year old bicycles in its U.S. plant, the latest in a string of bike-related announcements.
The announcement is the latest of several for the automaker, which has struggled to grow a motorcycle market after decades of building a car fleet of electric models.
The new bike units will be powered by a 3-liter gasoline engine, Fiat Chrysler said in a statement.
It is one of several announcements to announce new bike-building in recent months.
Earlier this month, Fiat also announced plans to add 100,00 bike-share bikes in its Detroit, Michigan plant.
The company did not provide details about how many bikes it plans, but said the new units will have a range of up to 300 miles on a single charge.
The automaker’s expansion plans are part of its efforts to expand its global bike-riding base.
Last month, the automaking company announced plans for its new $500 million assembly plant in Dearborn, Michigan, which it will build a $400 million line of bikes.
The plant will produce the next generation of the Fiat brand, which will be called the Fiat 500e, with a price tag of $70 million.
