Paris will deny all gas-fuelled cars access to its streets by 2030, which comes on top of an earlier pledge to bar diesel vehicles by 2024, when the city hosts the Olympic Games.
Only electric-powered cars will be allowed if the latest curbs on gas-powered vehicles are enforced.
The moves have been demanded by Mayor Anne Hidalgo, although she has angered many Parisian drivers with her efforts to make the traffic-snarled city a greener place.

I will be 100 yrs old IF I am still here.
Mighty Mouse -
Having recently traveled to Paris and seen the number of vehicles I don't think that enough electric cars could be built to meet the goal and I have not yet seen a fully functioning long haul truck and there were hundred of them on the roads in and around Paris. The progressives are dreaming if they think that people will not only give up their cars but will buy electric ones. Further what are they going to do with all those tourists who drive to Paris each year from countries where they do not have these electric car rules.
