Today, the Evening Standard reports that Parisian authorities announced plans to ban all combustion-engine cars, including those powered by gasoline, from the city's roads by the year 2030.

In an attempt to battle the high levels of pollution in the French capital, the mayor's office had already announced a ban on diesel cars by 2024.

It said that from 2025 new registrations will only be possible for cars that emit less than 100 grams of Carbon dioxide per kilometer, which should enable Slovenia to reduce greenhouse gas emissions by 9 percent from 2020 to 2030. City officials are often forced to issue temporary bans on gas- and diesel-powered cars in response to particularly bad surges.

The world's most visited city, Paris, plans to prohibit fossil-fueled cars from entering city before 2030. Paris has also instituted temporary vehicle bans inside the city in response to pollutant levels in the area, causing some irritation from city dwellers who have to commute by auto.

In a statement announcing the transition to only electric cars in Paris, officials made sure to clarify that the removal of all other types of cars by 2030 should not be interpreted as a ban but a "trajectory". Paris has already begun to fast-track this process by trying to simply keep cars out.

Plans to phase out internal combustion vehicles by foreign cities and countries have recently prompted calls for similar action in the U.S.; California governor Jerry Brown has called for the state to phase out sales of gas- and diesel-engined cars before the 2040 targets announced by France and the United Kingdom, citing China's commitment to bring about the same ban far sooner. The mayors of Paris, .
