PARIS TO OUTLAW GAS-POWERED CARS BY 2030

Ottawa Citizen - - WORLD -

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.
