First off, it's just marketing. I don't see it perpetuating the myth. Second, you are gonna want to dump your marketing into the high end. That is where the money is. Lousy ROI marketing the $300 hybrids.
How many ads do you see for the many low end crappy cars compared to the BMW's, Audi's etc? I don't see that perpetuating the myth that I must own an expensive sports car to drive.
