Every year, PPG Industries releases their data on the most popular car color in North America.  And for the past 10 years, the result has always been the same.  We just LOVE our SILVER cars. And, this year, silver isn’t just the most popular color yet again . . . it’s more popular than EVER. 31% of the cars sold in North America this year were silver, grey, or charcoal.  That’s up from 25% in 2009 and 20% in 2008. Black and white tied as the second-most popular colors this year, at 18% each. Red was third, at 11%. Blue is fourth, at 10%. “Natural” is fifth, at 8%.  That includes colors like brown, tan, gold, orange and yellow. And finally, green was last, at 4%. That’s a pretty stunning drop for green.  In 1994, green was the most popular car color in North America, at 21%.  Back then, silver only had an 8% share.
