It's bad to tow with a vehicle that can't handle the weight.  And because
of the battery weight, the car is already quite heavy.

In addition to excess wear on the tires, you may be depressing your shock
absorbers close to their limit, giving you a bumpy ride at best and busted
shocks at worst.

There's no issue with volts or amps; the primary thing that will happen as
far as electricity is concerned is that the car won't go as far on a full
charge.
