Advise on buying CNG car

I know there's a 40% rebate for buying new car to be convert to CNG/petrol.
But not sure how does the 40% is calculated? Can someone share with me?

With consideration of the big tank need to be install in the car boot, any recomendation which car model is more suitable? Heard tat toyota picnic had a 'hidden' place to store the tank and wont affect the space of the boot, is it true?

Pls give your comment on whether is worth to buy new CNG car?

Re: Advise on buying CNG car

I only have 1 concern. If accident, and the car behind you rammed into the back of the car, will the car catch fire as the CNG cylinders are in the back of the car?

Tot they say the gas is very light and it will dissipate very quickly so no explosion

Don't worry, will not explode, but will cause injury to the people sitting behind.
