Paris to ban combustion-engine cars by 2030

France is the leading manufacturer of electric vehicles sold in Europe, according to the Agence France-Presse, though hybrid and electric cars accounted for only 3.6 percent of new cars registered in Western Europe in 2016.

The French capital, which will host the Olympic Games in the summer of 2024 and was host city for the latest worldwide pact on policies to tame global warming, had already been eyeing an end to diesel cars in the city by the time of the Olympics. A year later, however, the agency measuring air pollution said the move had no significant impact on residents' exposure to carbon emissions citywide.

Paris's deputy mayor, Christophe Najdovski, told French broadcaster France Info that the mayor's office is planning to ban all combustion-engine cars on the French capital's streets by 2030.

The city's efforts to cut carbon emissions from cars follow a rise in air pollution, with the air quality reaching an "alert threshold" previous year according to the pollution-monitoring group Airparif. Paris officials have taken to making public transportation free on days when pollution levels are especially high. Parts of the city have "no-car zones", and the city even hosts an entire day when cars aren't permitted within the 40-square-mile area that Paris covers.
