Toronto, Ontario – A Vancouver man who was among the international auto winners of Volvo’s What Drives Edward online contest will be the only one to receive a special model: the 2010 Volvo XC60 actually used in the filming of The Twilight Saga: New Moon.
More than 370,000 people in Canada, the U.S., Germany, the U.K. and France participated in the online contest, where the first in each country to complete six puzzles won a prize of a Volvo XC60 or C30. Christopher Johnstone, 22, of Vancouver competed against 24,000 Canadian contestants. He will take delivery of the vehicle driven by character Edward Cullen on December 21.
“Congratulations to Christopher Johnstone on winning the XC60,” said Jeff Pugliese, president and CEO of Volvo Canada. “He did a great job of navigating his way through the game and his quick problem-solving skills have earned him a very unique vehicle that I’m sure he’ll be happy with. I’d also like to thank all of the participants in the contest. The program garnered such a tremendous response, both in Canada and around the globe, that we’re eager to be a part of more promotional opportunities with the series in the future.”
