Paris plans to ban all gas cars by 2030

Reuters reports that France's most-visited city will be banning non-electric cars as early as 2030, which is a full decade before the rest of France.

Paris will be among the first European cities to ban diesel cars and its ambitious plans to ban internal combustion cars by 2030 have just been reaffirmed. Paris has also instituted temporary auto bans inside the city in response to pollutant levels in the area, causing some irritation from city dwellers who have to commute by vehicle. 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.

Paris will encourage commuters who don't walk, bike or use public transportation to switch to electric cars.

Hidalgo has been seeking to reduce pollution with a series of measures.

The fight to clean up Europe's atmosphere just became more heated, as a high Parisian official announced plans to ban all fossil fuel cars by 2030.

Paris has seen significant amounts of rising air pollution in the last few years.

When it comes to efforts to reduce pollution within city limits, Paris is already known for introducing a ban on cars older than 20 years in the city during weekdays, a measure which drew some criticism for effectively discriminating against those who can not afford newer cars. "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".

While the country will stick to the 2040 timeline, France's capital city of Paris announced a more aggressive timeline.

As a whole, France will provide financial assistance to buyers, which will allow them to trade in older cars with combustion engines for newer, zero-emission vehicles.
