Should've tried saying you are towing your Insight
. About the same weight, but FWD.
The trailer I got from U-Haul to bring Koorz home weighed more than the car did.
As long as the car is READY and in neutral (turn the ASC off), I don't see any mechanical or electrical reasons the car can't be dolly-towed. What little heat is being generated by the free-spinning motor is being removed by the coolant. The only issue I see is the car's computer freaking out because the front wheels aren't turning. I'd almost guarantee you'll have warning lights illuminated when you got to your destination, but nothing a few feet of normal driving wouldn't fix.
At least U-Haul recognizes the i-MiEV as a RWD car. The guy at the service desk at the dealer thought the i-MiEV was FWD with all four tires the same size. Calling around for tires, another person actually argued that I had to buy 4 tires because only putting winter tires on the rear would do nothing for traction (again, thinking that I was wrong about the i-MiEV being RWD and not FWD).
That was the nice thing about the Cavalier I used to drive. It was flat-tow compatible and had the transmission's oil pump mounted to the output shaft so it would still function in neutral with the engine off. I hate how the i-MiEV's gearbox (all EVs, really) is listed as an "Automatic".
If somebody does dolly-tow the i-MiEV, I'd love to see the RR calculation after 15+ miles of only using .4 kW
