Nissan may experience shortages of some exterior colors, as well.
In the United States, black is the second most popular exterior color when all types of vehicles are taken into account. The most popular color continues to be white. However, this is due in part to the high number of government and corporate fleet vehicles that are ordered in white. Black is the most popular color for many sport vehicles, including compact sport vehicles. It also remains one of the most popular colors for luxury sedans.
Red is well down the list of popular colors in North America. Overall, red comes in fifth, well behind grey and just ahead of blue.
Internationally, black is the most popular color in both Europe and Russia. In most countries and regions around the world, black is at least the second or third most popular exterior vehicle color. The exception is India. There, black follows white, silver, brown/beige, and gray in popularity.
