Car buyers favour the colour Grey
According to SMMT, for the first time since records began, grey becomes the UK’s favorite new car colour as nearly half a million were registered in 2018.
59% of new cars registered in 2018 were white, grey or black. It has been 9 years since a primary colour sat in the top 3, however blue sat in 4th position in 2018 and red overtook silver.
Silver dropped out of the top 5 with its lowest popularity rate since the 1990’s.
In 2018, just over 1 in 5 of the 2.4 million new car registrations were painted grey.
Orange, showing an increase of 37%, jumped to 7th place and Beige, showing an increase of 28%, made it’s first appearance in the top 10 since 2014.
