Generally yeah, provided engine speed is high enough. Below ~1k rpms it's pretty bad even at full load, so something like a new Prius will use the motor up to ~5+mph no matter what IME, but even then that depends on gearing. A parallel hybrid like Honda's stuff still has conventional gearing so 1k rpm for the engine is pretty much right off the line.
