So many dull chroma free shades.   :-(

In 2015 I looked down a long straight suburban street and noted that the view was totally monochromatic. I decided then and there that my next car would be red. And it is, along with a Navy blue from '65, and a powder blue with silver stripes on the 7. 
loved the idea from 100 years ago when they would mix creams and navy etc.

That infographic uses the colour to represent itself, which may be obvious but it's still neat. The buttons at the bottom show the change over time. But whenever I look at this year's data I have to stop and work it out. I'm not sure why it isn't easier to grasp... perhaps because the bars are much taller than the buttons, perhaps because the form of the car is so strong but doesn't represent anything except the years. Would it be better if the colours were only filled in within the form of the car?

Jonathan, the graphic is clear to me. It doesn't need explaining.

One could have a stcked graph which would show how much of the market is chroma-free cars.

I do not think the image of the car adds anything.  It is a completely depressing picture and if you were to change the data to reflect the colour of choice for French in everyday clothing it would be an even stronger dull grey/black image.

My colleagues think my  red car is bizarre.

Having spent Sunday at Brooklands for the VSCC autotest I don't think you will find many people who would turn down a red car.

And one of the great infographics:

Can anyone explain all of the components and why it had to change without looking it up?
