Do Black Cars Really Get Hotter?

We’ve all heard that black cars, when left in the sun will elevate the internal temperature to levels that are unlivable. Anyone with a darkly colored car can attest to the heat wave that pours out of the door when you get in it on a summer day.

This time, Buzzfeed is here to figure out if having a black car really boosts the temperature inside to a noticeable amount over owning say, a white car.

Their results showed, given their testing conditions, that the black car would reach temperatures 33-degrees Fahrenheit higher than the white car. Does that really translate to the inside? Another study says that black cars use 2% more air conditioning for the same level of cooling.

Check out the video below that presents all of the evidence to us. It even talks about a proposed ban on the future production of black cars – wacky, right? What do you think of this whole debacle?
