I tow a Prius

A Prius is a front wheel drive. When the front tires are going around it charges the battery.

The Prius VOM states it cannot be towed four down. It must be on a dolly due to the above. Don't want to burn out the $1,500. battery and or start a fire.

I tow mine on a dolly as instructed.

Love the sunshine and warmer weather!

We looked at the same thing (Smart Electric), but a 100 mile range when running around a place like Yellowstone would be limiting (the Grand Loop in the park with no side trips is more that), and when camping somewhere with places to see outside of the vehicle range would mean we might as well be stuck at home. So we bought a Ford C-MAX as our tow and love it (primary use is a commuting vehicle for my wife). Tows 4 down with minimal effort...just got back from a 2500 mile trip with zero issues.
