Natural gas vehicles have the same standard safety features as conventional cars. They come equipped with dual air bags, theft protection, a reinforced steel frame, crash protection, rear impact protection, and much more. The high industry standard for the SEERngv coupled with the physical properties of natural gas make it much safer than the average gasoline powered vehicle. The threat of a fire in the event of an accident is far less with the SEERngv because natural gas quickly dissipates into the air if the fuel system is breeched. Many injuries and deaths occur each year because gasoline can easily ignite.
With 250,000 NGV’s on the road in the US and 12 million worldwide, it is clear that the NGV will be driving us into a brighter future.
