The Yamaha Passol was an electric scooter manufactured by Yamaha Motor Company beginning in 2002, and sold only in Japan. Weight was 44 kilograms (97 lb) and claimed range 32 kilometres (20 mi). It was described as the first mass-produced electric motorcycle in Japan (the Peugeot Scoot'Elec was produced earlier). It had a lithium-ion battery. A Passol-L model with the same motor and bigger battery was released in 2005, and a related electric, the EC-02, featuring a built-in iPod dock, also was released in 2005.
A recall for battery problems in the Passol and EC-02 was issued in late 2006, followed by the halting of production of all Yamaha electric motorcycles in 2007 due to the recall coupled with weak sales.
