I think it's preferred to drive the Driveshaft directly, otherwise shifting would be a major issues (a clutch would be required to decouple the electric engine from drivetrain during shifting), or else...! ...or, it would be put into gear for a high or low speed range before moving, but could never be shifted while moving...

Yes I will be using a clutch too.
