A ban on petrol-fuelled vehicles marks a radical escalation of policy in the world's most visited city

The French capital has already announced it will ban all diesel-powered vehicles from 2024, together with three other major cities, while President Emmanuel Macron's government has promised to ban all ICE-powered cars from the country by 2040. "This is about planning for the long term with a strategy that will reduce greenhouse gases".

Diesel-powered vehicles are actually set to be outlawed in Paris before their gas-powered equivalents.

The mayor's office released a statement clarifying its aims after news outlets reported that the city was banning gasoline cars.

While fossil fuel emissions affect all of France and, indeed, the whole planet, Paris is a hotspot for particle pollution. "We're planning to press ahead with the end of fossil-based vehicles because quite simply we're running out of time".

The climate plan will be submitted to the Council of Paris for a vote in November.

Oxford, England, recently announced plans to ban non-electric cars from parts of the city by 2020. Many Parisians prefer to use vehicles such as public transport, bicycles instead of owning cars.

By offering alternatives, we can do without a personal auto. A few months later, Paris converted the lower quays along the Seine from motorways into promenades for pedestrians and cyclists.

And Paris City Hall called its third car-free day, banning automobiles in more than 40 square miles for most of October 3.
