I see that 350e seems to have great lease numbers. However it doesn't seem to be popular trim. I researched online but couldn't find anything indicative of any serious problems with this model. Why isn't it leasing more? I am in the New England area. Does the hybrid have performance issues in cold weather?

    I think it's something called "free will".

    Not every car is successful in the marketplace.

    Though, I do see more of these leased in CA, where fuel prices are much higher.

    Thanks, I just wanted to ensure there isn't anything wrong with the car itself that might make it unpopular. I agree with the sentiment.

    I'm sure if you dig hard enough, you can find negative reviews on just about any car in the market. You have to decide what's right for you.

    The car has problems in very cold weather. I've myself bought the 2017 model and I've been having one serious problem every winter that required the car to be towed. I think some circuits can't operate anymore as the car warns that a large number of thing are "innoperative". The car is very impressive otherways, it's very spacious and its also powerful when it comes for drivetrain.
