Toyota Repair Problems? Ask a Mechanic for Answers ASAP
If the car is off then how is this any different than coasting down a hill in neutral.
Because the car is going to generate electricity when the wheels are turning (4 wheels on ground). Where is that electricity going to go?
Is there any mechanical or particular electrical reason I cant dolly tow it?
Dolly tow as in the two rear wheels are the only wheels touching the ground?
The picture I attached is straight from the owners manual. The only way to tow this car is with all four wheels off the ground. There is ZERO exceptions to this rule for your car.
The electromagnetic motor in the rear of your car will burn up the transmission and invertor if you tow it, and its possible the body its self will will become conductive and shock the heck out of you if you touch it (we have seen this before at the dealership)
To answer your question, Yes, you will 100% burn up the transmission, electromagnetic rear end, and whatever else the electricity you produce goes though.
This is a pretty confusing topic for a lot of people but I have seen the damage this can do first hand being at the dealership. You will not find a tow company will tow and toyota hybrid unless they have a flat bed.
Sorry to be the one with the bad news, but I would rather you be informed, than cause damage to your car.
Please let me know if you have any other questions.
