The Smart Fortwo, which is certified as a SmartWay vehicle for its low air pollution and greenhouse gas scores, is the most fuel-efficient non-hybrid vehicle and the third most fuel-efficient vehicle in the United States with an Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) estimated mile per gallon (MPG) rating of 33 city and 41 highway, the release noted.
Kevin McVeigh, associate marketing director of sustainability for Kimberly-Clark Professional, said: "Being environmentally responsible is smart for business and smart for individuals. Kimberly-Clark Professional believes it is our responsibility as corporate citizens to reduce our use of natural resources. The Smart Car is an emblem of sustainability, with its fuel efficiency and use of green technologies."
Five finalists were selected at random at ISSA/INTERCLEAN North America on October 8, 2009; Angula was selected as the grand prizewinner when the key she chose was able to open a locked box containing the key for the Smart Fortwo Passion Coupe on display in the Kimberly-Clark Professional booth, the release added.
