Sport mode will also keep both motors engaged. Almost sounds like the rear motor is over heating and it's limiting power to it, going around 70mph shouldn't be any issue for it. Or it may be a bad motor temp sensor giving false readings. I would use your obd2 app to monitor temperature and see if it's reporting anything funny and it will likely need to goto the dealer. Haven't heard of that happening before and no TSBs listed for the motor, just battery preconditioning and charging issues.
