Curious if you've tried the e-save mode for cold starts?I'm in the mid-West so we are now approaching the time of year to test out the cold-weather use case. It is well documented that battery capability drops with low temperatures. Add to that the additional demand of the heater, heated steering and heated seats and this puts a big load on the battery. Gasoline engines produce a lot of waste heat which is good in colder climate situations, so I was thinking about 'forcing' the engine to run on cold starts by putting it into 'e-save' mode until the gas engine is warm and then running in 'hybrid' mode once the vehicle warms up. I believe engine coolant is circulated into the batteries so the engine heat should warm up the hybrid batteries and help. I also thought I read somewhere that 4xe will run conditioned coolant when plugged in to moderate the battery temps (people describe fans going off when the vehicle is parked and plugged in). I would be surprised if the same is not done for maintaining some heat in the batteries during cold weather, but this is just speculation on my part. If you truly are dissatisfied with your 4xe, you should have no trouble trading it in or reselling as demand is extremely high for the 4xe.
