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. It's not the only developed country that has such plans, as the Dutch also plan to ban all fossil fuel cars by 2030, and China already stated it would ban petrol cars 'in the near future'. "So we are planning an exit from combustion engine vehicles, or fossil-energy vehicles, by 2030".

On the heels of France and the United Kingdom announcing plans to phase out sales of combustion-engined cars by 2040, the state of California is mulling a similar move much earlier than the 2040 target date, .

Although it may seem incredibly hard for North Americans to imagine such a ban, many Parisians do not own a vehicle. Many Parisians prefer to use vehicles such as public transport, bicycles instead of owning cars.

It already has car-free days and car-free zones, while it also fines drivers who enter the city in vehicles over 20 years olds - moves that have attracted criticism in the past.

While the country will stick to the 2040 timeline, France's capital city of Paris announced a more aggressive timeline.

Less than two weeks after Paris celebrated its third annual Day Without Cars, its mayor has decreed that the schedule for moving out fossil-fuel powered cars is moving up. The City of Lights plans to bring about a gradual phaseout of combustion-engine cars by the year 2030, avoiding calling it a "ban" but echoing steps already taken by the city government to reduce air pollution in the city, Reuters reports.

There are about 32 million household cars in France, where the population is about 66 million, according to 2016 data from the Argus, an automobile industry publication.
