Paris plans to ban gas-powered cars in city by 2030

Paris plans to ban gas-powered cars in city by 2030

Paris officials aren't calling the limitations on vehicles an outright ban, but rather masquerading it behind a hard cutoff where inefficient cars powered by an internal combustion engine would be phased out in favor of newer, greener technology.

The mayor of Paris, Anne Hidalgo, has already announced plans to remove all diesel cars from the roads of the French capital by 2024.

"Transport is one of the main greenhouse gas producers.so we are planning an exit from combustion engine vehicles, or fossil-energy vehicles, by 2030", Najdovski told France Info Radio, according to Reuters.

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, .

Cars that run on electricity would not be affected.

Although it may seem incredibly hard for North Americans to imagine such a ban, many Parisians do not own a vehicle.

Paris has seen significant amounts of rising air pollution in the last few years. Paris has already implemented a fairly controversial policy of not allowing vehicles older than 20 years old into the city, also a measure to reduce pollution.

Many Parisians don't own a auto but Hidalgo still has angered many of them with her efforts to make Paris a greener city, notably by adding cycling paths that have slowed vehicle traffic along the Seine River.

While the country will stick to the 2040 timeline, France's capital city of Paris announced a more aggressive timeline. Some pollution spikes have been so bad they forced City Hall to bar half of all cars from traveling and to make public transportation free for several days. The authorities are looking to drop overall emissions by 49 percent in 2030, use four billion euros to promote the transition and also invest 100 million euro more into bicycle infrastructure.
