Prius drivers are not much different from any other self-imposed social category that a consumer tries to portray as his/her image to the world via their car. If you want to make generalizations about Prius, Corvette, or other car owners:
I drive a truck because I am a real man.
I drive a Subaru wagon because I am sporty and outdoorsy.
I drive a Lincoln because I am successful, and can appreciate the finer things.
I drive an electric car because I care so much about the environment.
(if you ever see any advertising, that's the basic message, people buy it)
motorcycles buyers are even worse
