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

Slovenia sets tough emissions limits for cars

In the future, the noise of auto engines revving around the streets of Paris might become just a memory.

"This is about planning for the long term with a strategy that will reduce greenhouse gases", Christophe Najdovski, an official responsible for the transportation policies in the mayor's office, "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".

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.

In her latest effort to make the French capital greener, Paris Mayor Anne Hidalgo has called for a ban on petrol cars from the year 2030. Her detractors have accused her of waging a war against cars. "In recent months, many carmakers have announced their decision to invest in electric vehicles and gradually disengage from diesel and gasoline".

Many Parisians do not own cars, relying on extensive public transport systems and, increasingly, fast-burgeoning networks offering bikes, scooters and low-pollution hybrid engine cars for shot-term rental.

In a statement this afternoon, the Paris Authority confirmed its ambition to incentivise the use of electric and alternatively fuelled vehicles, without "prohibition or sanction" against diesel or petrol cars.

While fossil fuel emissions affect all of France and, indeed, the whole planet, Paris is a hotspot for particle pollution. "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".
