Green Becoming Popular Among Car Colors, Says Study

We don’t know ‘bout you, but we’re a bit tired of white, black or silver, the most popular colors among car manufacturers and drivers alike. This trend is on for a decade now and it seems it will last for a while longer.

However, BASF says that green, otherwise a color with strong eco-friendly connections, is gaining ground among car colors. To be honest, we think the company nailed it just right, as different shades of green started to show up several cars, including the 2014 Corvette Stingray (“Lime Rock Green”) or the 2014 Mustang Cobra Jet and 2014 Roush Mustang (both in our beloved “Gotta Have it Green”).

“The new greens that will be applied to cars in the coming three or four years are making a point of leaving their eco-image behind. In this context, green stands for new values such as straightforwardness, responsibility and individuality, as well as for harmony and balance, which are becoming increasingly important factors in society,” said BASF in a statement.
