Towing using a towline
The vehicle can only be towed using a towline to pull it up onto the bed of a tow truck.
Attaching and removing the towing eyelet

Activating and deactivating Tow mode
Tow mode is used when the vehicle needs to be able to roll freely, for example, to pull it up onto the bed of a tow truck.
This section refers to transporting the vehicle with a tow truck or similar vehicle.
Safety mode is a feature that is triggered after a collision if there is potential damage to an important function in the vehicle, such as the high-voltage system, sensors for one of the safety systems, the brake system, etc.
Starting and moving the vehicle when it is in safety mode
If safety mode has been set, it may be possible to reset the system in order to start and move the vehicle a short distance, for example, if it is blocking traffic.
