2019 Ford Fusion hybrid input please

Our previous toad a '15 Ford Edge was modified by someone placing their late model Silverado in our path at an intersection earlier this month (see photo). We are making it day by day and are now considering a '19 Ford Fusion hybrid to replace the Edge. According to both the motorhome towing guide and the owners manual it is flat towable. The only non-standard condition is the base plate attachment points are 16" rather than the usual 24" separation. I don't think this will have a big impact but I wonder.

I would be interested in hearing of any experience flat towing a Ford Fusion, good, bad, or indifferent. Click image for larger version

We use a Ford Fusion Energy and have no issues after adding a 12 volt line from the MH.

Our Fusion is a 2017 and the 16 inches is no issue. Make sure your brake assist will work on a hybrid. Our Patriot setting goes from 5 down to 3 or 2 for the hybrid.
We have had no issues plugging out car into the MH over night.
