Everyone we speak to (on Zoom, obviously) says life is just getting duller. So no wonder that when it comes to buying goods of whatever kind we’re looking at add a bit of colour to our lives.
We weren’t surprised by the latest SMMT’s recent report showing that while boring black remains the most popular colour for cars, a growing number of car transactions are in vivid hues, including pink, gold and turquoise.
Let’s not get carried away and think that driving will suddenly have a bit more pizzazz… nearly one and a half million people still think black is the only colour. Silver, blue, grey and white make up the top five for 2020.
But we salute the four thousand-odd folk who bought a pink car, along with the 6,510 trying turquoise and the whopping 23,427 going for gold. Red, yellow and orange even made it to the top ten!
A bit of colour brightens everyone’s life.
