I was curious so I went to the PPG Industries site and found this:

"In North America, white ranks first (21 percent), followed by black (19 percent), silver and gray (16 percent each), red (10 percent), blue (8 percent), natural (7 percent) and green (3 percent).

In Europe, white is also most popular (23 percent), followed by black (21 percent), gray (17 percent), silver (13 percent), blue, natural and red (7 percent each), other colors (3 percent) and green (2 percent).

In the Asia Pacific region, silver and white tied for most popular (23 percent each), followed by black (19 percent), natural (10 percent), red (9 percent), gray (8 percent), blue (7 percent) and green (1 percent)."

So as I read that, in the US almost 3/4s of all cars are white, black, silver or gray....much the same for Europe and only a little different for Asia, where red and "natural" sneak in ahead of gray.

I assume "natural" is a beige/light gold color, like the X1's "Cashmere Silver"...
