1. First, ask the factory

2. Second, ask Remco

3. Then post the answer(s) here so we can help the next person who wants to know,

antlerz> I work part-time for a Toyota dealer. It is not towable according to the factory folks. I sure as heck would not risk damage to the drive train in that model.$$$$$$
Having some problems with them just shutting down and can't figure what causes it. I'd look at something else as a toad.

A Prius can not be towed 4 down. Due to the specialized drive line it would damage it. It can be towed on a car dolly. That is how we tow our 2001 and my brother tows his 2004. We have had no trouble with towing it on the dolly. Just drive it up, put it in park, fasten it down and go.

Cool little scooter car, But was looking to go Green with the EV Ranger or such,
I have built a couple of electric bicycles which work great for around campgrounds, or town quiet, no fuel to spill plus just plug into your site and ready for the next short commute. about 20 miles to a charge

Funny that my reply to RV Roamer has disappeared

# 4 was here's a quarter call someone who gives a XXXX. I think your reply to my question was not a good response. I was asking for help but yet you brushed it off.


thanks for your experience here

antlerz, it was probably modified due to language. Certian words or words in disguise are not allowed. The BBS has a filter to elimate certain words and it does catch a lot of them. What it misses, we edit, modify or delete.
