A coworker had the citrus lime colored one. This was back when the Insight first came out, and the only other color choice might have been the silver.

Would have been my first choice, but to wait for the right car in the right colour could take years, at best only 4 or 5 of these come up for sale a year in the UK (not including Japanese imports) but I do like this colour too. My friend opposite where I work can wrap cars and has a sample, almost exactly the same as the citrus colour, if my paintwork were in worse shape and I had the spare cash, id consider getting it wrapped. Renault, Peugeot and even VW have similar shades, VW call it Viper green on the Scirrocco although its way more green than yellow as on the Honda.

A couple of phone snaps, for those interested, from recent trips in the Spaceship!

Speaking of green, at first I thought the Prius had a similar shade to Citrus in the US, but under closer inspection it is just a very ugly lime neon green, like fluorescent '80s socks!
I still think the Mazda 2 green is fab, and there are often Corsas in a similar shade, or Fiestas with one closer to citrus.
I'm a big fan of green cars, but the missus hates them - she even used to threaten not to ride with me in one if I ever got one!

My Mum is superstitious (she's from the North East, every other sentence is a saying of some sort) and she says Green cars are unlucky and will never buy one as a result!

The only green we have that I'm aware of is what I'd call sea foam green and I think they call it sea glass. It's a very light green with to me a slight grayish hint. I'm not aware of any lime neon offering and have never seen one that I can remember.

There was a light green that shifted to a blue depending on lighting for the gen1.

On the Toyota site, it appeared the gen2 had a similar color called tideland pearl. I wanted that color, but the sample chip the dealer had looked almost black, and he said it was actually lighter grey. So I chickened out.

When I finally saw it in the flesh about a week after getting my Prius, it was an unique grey green, and I kicked myself for not ordering it. it was cancelled on the next model year(2006), and replaced with the light green that was continued on to the gen3.

In Japan, the gen4 has a light green option that reflects more infrared, and helps keep the car and cabin cooler.

Love the Mazda green, think the Prius green too wishy washy.
Maybe it is more fluorescent than neon?
