According to recent study from DuPont, only two percent of new vehicles built in North America in 2007 were painted green.
Green was even a less popular choice than yellow, which accounted for three percent of manufacturers’ colour choice.
Now if you were an upcoming young(ish) barrister with an affiliation to the Australian Green party what sort of new car would you buy? Would you go for the sporty 911 (in green) or perhaps you would make a statement about road safety by buying a Volvo. Heck, you may think that a green Golf GTI would be the go, after all a VW is the people’s car. Perhaps you would furfill you secret desire to be all macho with a 4WD RAV four, telling all and sundry that you have bought it for those sunday drives in the bush, or even a new Mini convertable (because the Germans have actaully made them better and you don’t think that a Mini is a” girly” car at all ).
Then again you might just go all the way and prove just how devoted to the Green cause you actually are by getting an example of the ultimate Green car , that is light weight, environmentally friendly and that gets the very best gas mileage possible*
