    I suspect it’s partially because everybody who wanted one already has one, and the increase over the standard model doesn’t justify the added expense for many people.

So while all of the major players offer some type of hybrid in their midsize sedan, IIRC, only Nissan and Toyota offer hybrid CUVs.
