I live in an area where the weather conditions are mostly mild.
My 2008 Ford Escape Hybrid is extremely sluggish at the very beginning of my is not revving high. it just crawls at 1 mile an hour for a bit

Warming up has nothing to do with it. From a dead start, you're running on hybrid battery only. I'd suspect that there's a defect in that system. Have a mechanic review this.
