Paris Officially Says It's Phasing Out All Non-Electric Cars

Paris announced it will ban all gas- and diesel-fueled cars within city limits by 2030, allowing only electric vehicles onto its streets, according to Reuters.

Paris is planning to ban all but electric cars by 2030. A year later, however, the agency measuring air pollution said the move had no significant impact on residents' exposure to carbon emissions citywide.

"We have planned the end of thermic vehicle use, and therefore of fossil energies, by 2030", Paris deputy mayor in charge of transport Christophe Nadjovski said Thursday on France Info radio, according to The Associated Press. "Transport is one of the main greenhouse gas producers". In order to achieve the goal of an end to the thermal engines in 2030, the City has made a decision to invest in the development of alternatives and in the reinforcement of financial aids that allow individuals and professionals to buy clean vehicles. "This is about planning for the long term with a strategy that will reduce greenhouse gases". Officials have also approved days of free public transportation, introduced rentable bikes and electric cars in the city and banned traffic from the popular Champs-Elysees Avenue once a month, among other measures.

"If we want to achieve this, it implies that the end of diesel and gasoline should take place several years in advance in urban areas, and particularly in big cities".

On the heels of France and the United Kingdom announcing plans to phase out sales of combustion-engined cars by 2040, the state of California is mulling a similar move much earlier than the 2040 target date, . The deadline for those cars is 2024, which is when the city will play host to the Olympic games.
