Aside from Lithium primaries - which I don't think they even make in D size - what type of cell provides the best cold temperature performance? Alkaline, Nimh, or Lion ? My major concern is the 3D Maglites I keep in the cars.

Smaller lights can use CR123 primaries.
Below freezing? Lithium.

You are right, they don't make D cell lithium primaries. You can use a 3- AA to D cell adapter and use AA lithium primaries.
The next best would be Li-Ion rechargeables.

Nope no D Energizer lithiums, if they did make them likely the cost per cell would be sticker shock at probably 6-8 dollars a cell or more I don't think many people would consider them if they needed 3-4 of them as $15-$30 for disposable batteries would push people into simply replacing the device with a rechargeable one.
