White only as this was the only car that was showing for a Feb 22 delivery else i would have had to wait for a few more months. Otherwise I would have chosen Blue i think.

If I could choose I would go with the white one. In my opinion it has the cleanest look (there is a reason why the original concept was white) and has the best contrast with the black parts. I will end up getting yellow cause it was the only option that didn't come with an 8 months waiting requirement. The blue color is a nice one too, but all the dark colors don't have the high contrast with the black parts which makes the car look more subtle.
White = clean;
Yellow = bold;
Steel, blue and black = stealthy.

In the beginning there was a chance that we could get yellow one for very good price. I don't like it and my wife hates it :D But we would buy it anyway and film wrap it in colour we would like (maybe even red).

To be honest, the only color I have seen in metal is blue. Yellow is probably the most difficult to get from photos. On one photo it looks like a lemon, on another like a lime. So I am getting one without knowing how I feel about the actual color.

Anyway, if the price is good wrapping a car is a valid option. I am considering 3M liquid copper wrap in case the charged yellow will turn out to be something I wont be able to digest.

Wrapping a small size car costs around €1,3k in case someone is interested. A wrap not only gives you a color you want but probably will never get among the fifty shades of grey most manufacturers offer, but it also protects the actual paint from damage. My girlfriend has a Toyota IQ wrapped in ironman color(s) for more than 3 years now and it still looks amazing.

The charge yellow is not too bright. Some pictures on autotrader are over saturated and make it look really bright, which it isn't.

I would say the colour resembles a UK ambulance - it's not too bright. A bright colour perhaps, but not too bright in itself.

Our test drive was in yellow one. To be honest if I wouldn't know I would add some green shade into charge yellow name :)

the charge yellow has some endearing characteristics: (i) you can spot it in a car park from 3 kilometres way; (ii) you never walk down the road and walk towards/try to unlock the wrong car...
My wife hated the yellow/green and said she "would not be seen dead in it" but now loves it. Other than an unrepeated few days of the apparently common window up-down indecisiveness, the only problem now is she's always driving it...

I only considered the white and the yellow.
My wife only liked the white, so white it was.
No regrets.
