With the UK car market on the up the Society of Motor Manufacturers and Traders (SMMT) has recently revealed that white is now the most popular car colour. In 2014 almost a quarter of all new cars registered in 2014 were white.

More details were reported in an SMMT news article:

“The colour’s record-breaking popularity follows a strong upturn in the uptake of white cars, over the past decade. In 2010, white cars accounted for just under 10% of new car registrations, making it the sixth most popular car colour, with black and silver cars the best-selling. In 2005, less than 1% of the UK’s new car buyers chose white.

In 2014, black cars took second place followed by grey, taking 19% and 14% of the market respectively. Silver – the second most popular colour in 2010 with almost a quarter of registrations – has now slipped to sixth place, accounting for 13% of the total new car market.

White became the UK’s most popular choice in 2013, but for many years it was one of the least-favoured choices of car colour.

Demand for white cars saw exponential growth from 2008 to 2012, with the number of units registered growing from 1.1% in 2007 to 20.9% in 2012.”

If you are looking for a new car is the colour high up on your list of must haves?
