White Car Popularity Hits All Time High In 2014

After a flood of popularity in recent years, white is now the UK’s favourite car colour. Even in a world full of different coloured cars, most people seem to choose either black or white. Almost a quarter of new vehicles registered in 2014 were white meaning it has been the highest proportion since records began.
Out of the 2,476,435 new vehicles registered in 2015, 22.2% of these were white.
Although white cars are harder to see in snow or blizzards they could be safer than black ones. There are other benefits of having a white car too. Black cars tend to absorb the sun meaning in summer, the cabin of the car may get too hot. So, in hot countries it’s no wonder people buy different coloured cars. However that’s not really the case in the UK! We know white vehicles are a pain to clean but they do look more stylish when they are sparkling than other colour options.
You may find if you opt for a white car that they tend to hold their value better than any other colour choices such as red as they may depreciate faster depending on trends. You may also find that you won’t get bored with the colour as quick. This can depend on gender though. According to an analysis of 30 million used car listings men have a 7% stronger preference for white cars then women do.
We know it sounds silly but some people think the rise in sales of white cars could be due to the ‘Apple Effect’. This means that people would like their gadget such as their iPhone to match their car colour.
