Diesel-powered vehicles are actually set to be outlawed in Paris before their gas-powered equivalents.
"This is about planning for the long term with a strategy that will reduce greenhouse gases", Christophe Najdovski, a transportation policy official for the city of Paris, told France Info radio. According to French local authorities, Paris has chose to cease all internal combustion engine-powered vehicle sales by 2030, looking to become a carbon-neutral city by 2050.
The new announcement would most likely speed up the transition from internal combustion cars to plug-in hybrids and then on to electric cars. It's also worth noting that Paris served as the host city of the global Paris Climate Accord, a pact to reduce carbon dioxide globally. Her detractors have accused her of waging a war against cars. The statement added that Paris officials would keep discussing the issue with residents and auto makers in the coming months.
Although it may seem incredibly hard for North Americans to imagine such a ban, many Parisians do not own a auto.
