White has passed silver as the world's most popular car colour, according to an annual survey by paint company PPG Industries.

Silver spent a decade on top but PPG says 21% of vehicles built in the 2011 model year were white. Black and silver tied for second at 20% each.

White was the top color in North America. Black was first in Europe and silver was the most popular choice in Asia.

PPG is also offering colors for future cars including Pot o' Gold, a light green with a hint of gold; White Nougat, a creamy, sparkly white; and Grape Spritz, a blue fused with purple.

PPG forecasts colour trends based on fashion and interior design.
