On paper electric cars are perfect for towing. They have plenty of torque, no gear changes to worry about, and powerful regenerative braking on hills that can help slow the extra weight of a trailer down.

But should you tow with your electric car? That’s a different question which (if you don’t happen to own one of the few plug-in cars that are built with towing in mind) can be a little more complicate. Ultimately, the answer to that question usually depends on where you live, how you view vehicle warranties, what the local laws are regarding towing where you live, and how much you like living on the edge.
