Not quite...at least one motor is in gear (so to speak) at all times, even when gliding. Even though the electric motor only has one gear...it is still "in" gear.

Coasting prohibited.

The driver of any motor vehicle traveling on a downgrade on any highway shall not coast with the gears of the vehicle in neutral."
