In the Prius, if I recall, you can toggle "Brake" and "Drive" modes while coasting, which allows you to either EOC or Regenerative Brake down to a stop.
The standard Prius will EOC below about 44 MPH, and the plug in version can be manually toggled to EV mode below 61 MPH.

Start-stop while moving, that sounds like DFCO or EOC and then a bump-start.

Natalya makes a small PCB which feeds the ECU a ~2mph signal for a moment, which causes auto-stop to kick in at any speed, and doesn't affect the FCD (because it calculates MPG and shows speed without the ECU). It will stay in auto-stop until you throw the car back into gear. Just put it on a relay with a button near your shifter and you have auto-stop whenever you'd like.

46mph on deceleration, 42mph under acceleration. But the 4th gen will turn the engine off up to 62mph, which is why regular drivers get so much better mileage with them vs. earlier Priuses.
