U.S. (CNN) – General Motors is selling its first bike ever.

It is called the “Ariv”, an electric motor bike that can be charged in about 3 1/2 hours.

The automaker says that will last a rider about 40 miles of riding.

The Ariv also has a “walk mode” where the motor can help roll the bike when you are not riding it.

The mode of transportation even comes with a built-in USB port and cell phone mount.

GM believes it will be the first of it’s kind in Germany, Belgium and the Neternalnds.

It will run at about $2,500 to $3,000, plus taxes and shipping.

No word if and when it will come to the U.S.
