Paris plans to banish all but electric cars by 2030

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

Speaking on France Info radio, the Paris deputy mayor in charge of transport, Christophe Nadjovski, said "we have planned the end of thermic vehicle use, and therefore of fossil energies, 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. Her detractors have accused her of waging a war against cars. Hidalgo also introduced car-free days and zones as well as a 20-mph (32 kph) speed limit throughout the city.

A study carried out by an air quality monitoring group said Monday the move had had a limited impact on air quality.

Less than two weeks after Paris celebrated its third annual Day Without Cars, its mayor has decreed that the schedule for moving out fossil-fuel powered cars is moving up.

The move marks an acceleration in plans to wean the country off gas-guzzlers and switch to electric vehicles in a city often obliged to impose temporary bans due to surges in particle pollution in the air. "In recent months, many carmakers have announced their decision to invest in electric vehicles and gradually disengage from diesel and gasoline". "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".
