excel worksheets.add xlchart

I am trying to create a new worksheet of type xlChart (-4109) using the Excel COM interface.
The .add method allows me to add 3/4 types of sheets.

     xlDialogSheet = -4116
     xlExcel4IntlMacroSheet = 4
     xlExcel4MacroSheet = 3
     xlWorksheet = -4167

But the com interface throws an error when I try to create the  xlChart (xlChart = -4109) type.

Any suggestions on creating a xlChart type sheet in code?

See below code for 2 other options which can be underlined by any com code

Sub AddNewChart()
Dim x As Variant
Set x = ThisWorkbook.Sheets.Add(Type:=xlChart)
x.Name = "NewChart"
Set x = ThisWorkbook.Charts.Add
x.Name = "NewChart1"

End Sub
