Henry Ford famously declared that you could get a car in any color you wanted as long as it was black. Well, that may not be the case any more.
If you think black is a hot color for a car, you're not alone. The California Air Resources Board thinks the same thing. And that's a problem.
The CARB believes the air conditioning systems in black cars work harder and waste more energy than the ones in lighter colored cars.
It also wants the car companies to come up with new, more energy efficent [sic] paints.
But they haven't been able to come up with a new black paint.
The best the carmakers can do, so far, looks like "mud-puddle brown."
I'd point out that this is stupid, but that's pretty obvious.
Will steel gray be next?
