Thornhill, Ontario – A 2010 Toyota Highlander Hybrid, the first one to arrive in Ontario, has been awarded to Anna Ross of Creemore, Ontario as the grand prize winner in CAA South Central Ontario’s Autogreen Challenge.

The contest was designed to challenge the public to learn about fuel-efficient vehicle choices, “green” servicing options such as re-refined oil and the new CAA Green Battery, change driving habits, and tell the government about the importance of eco-driving.

“Congratulations to Ms. Ross and the over 6,000 drivers who took part in our Autogreen Challenge,” said Nick Park, president and CEO of CAA South Central Ontario. “It’s important that each of us take steps to minimize our environmental footprint. And to thank those who took part, we will be planting over 6,000 carbon-capturing and oxygen-producing trees through our partnership with Trees Ontario.”
