I've done the exact same thing with my 2015 Prius and the ACME EZE Tow dolly with great success.

We have a Toyota Camry Hybrid and were originally told the rear wheels charge the battery and could overcharge it if dolly towed. Then we went to another Toyota dealer who took the time to really research it with us. They told us the Camry was the same set up as the Prius and it could be dolly towed with no problems.

Towing a Prius on the Acme EZE TOW Tow Dolly

Yes, a Prius can be towed on a dolly. We have hundreds of customers using our dolly for that car. No loading aids, no clearance issues on or off. In fact the Prius is the number one car question we receive every week. That is why the star our 12 minute video is a 2014 Prius. To watch the video follow this link, it will auto open. Thanks.

EZE Tow,


I asked this question several months ago and have shared your video (that you sent me of a Prius being towed on your dolly) to several people including two on this post. It is very clear by your video that a Prius can be safely towed.


Thank you for sharing the video with me previously. I will continue to share it but just like you posted it here for the OP, you did the same thing with me and I will be purchasing your dolly this summer for this purpose.

good point... look like i will have to stay with this little honda although prius would be nicer. between the dinghy and dolly, i would say go with one dinghy-able all day long. its just so much easier, within 5 minutes you are on the road.
