500e has no tow point, according to at least one of those threads, as @RoadRaceJosh noted.

It seems extremely dangerous: The front end has a removable cover where a tow eye would go, & there's even a hole inside that, where an eye will seem to screw in, however it's just plastic & sheet metal, with no actual threads to take the load.

In other words, a well-meaning tow truck driver might screw in an eye, & it will pull right out, hopefully with nobody in its line of fire, & hopefully while the car is still on level ground.

I believe the back end is safer, with a removable cover there too, but no hole inside it to fake you out.

So it needs to be towed the old-fashioned way, strapping onto some strong suspension parts.

how is it different than coasting at the same speed when driving?
It seems to me that it's the same IF you're towing the car in "ready" mode & it's in drive, like coasting at the same speed when driving.

And be VERY careful to remember to turn it off!!!

That's very easy to forget, since it's silent. Note the 4/17/22 addition here:
