Cars haven't been selling well in North America in 2008, but when they do, white sells best, according to DuPont's annual automotive popularity report. White and pearl made up 20% of the market in 2008. Silver—the color champ until white knocked it off the pedestal in 2007—and black both came in at 17%. DuPont says global color preferences are beginning to converge, although differences remain. In Europe, black makes up 26% of the market, followed by silver at 20% and gray at 18%.
