That is one of our favorite colors! We are trying to decide which one to pick!
One of the great things having a design own the company is that he's not just thinking about the bottom line. A while back, Henrik said that 70% of all cars are black/white/gray. I've checked other vehicles and the vast majority of their colors are variations of those 3. I was recently looking at the Volvo V60. It was only available in 4 colors, all grayscale. You could make the argument that the V60 is a fringe vehicle that doesn't sell much (I'm a big fan of Volvo wagons, btw), but even their other cars are mostly grayscale. They'll be available on the Ocean of course, but its color palette is surprisingly large.

Only on the exterior. What non-black interior goes with Red or Orange? There is no 鈥渨arm鈥 tan/natural color value. Sea Salt has a damned blue stripe wrecking it!

The thought just occurred to me that perhaps the interior color palette will increase when other colors come out. A Sea Salt interior with a blue stripe wouldn't work with an orange exterior, but it looks like the only available exterior colors at the start will be various blues and grayscale.

Color is a personal choice! I have no idea what to configure, I am waiting on the new colors to be loaded and I might do Sand interior if I know more about the fabric to seal it. No rush, enjoying the ride and hoping for a successful rollout.

Sand interior? All I see are dark blue, black, and white. What do you know that we don't? A "Sand" color would be a major help for the red, orange, and even blue exteriors!
