“You can - but you'll be limited to choosing certain models, if this is important to you. This is not because electric cars aren't well suited to towing, it's because their manufacturers don't usually certify them for towing. It's all to do with the combined weight of the vehicle and whatever is being towed. Electric cars tend to be heavier than conventional models, because of their large batteries, so the combined weight of the car and a caravan would affect braking efficiency. But it's a different story for plug-in hybrid cars and there is a good choice of models from manufacturers like Mitsubishi, Volvo and Audi that will easily lug a caravan.”
