Christophe Najdovski, one of Paris's transportation officials, told the radio station France Info, "Transport is one of the main greenhouse gas producers.so we are planning an exit from combustion engine vehicles, or fossil-energy vehicles, by 2030".
Diesel-powered vehicles are actually set to be outlawed in Paris before their gas-powered equivalents. Currently, diesel cars account for about 40 percent of total new vehicle sales in France and the local automakers are among the best on the diesel market.
Cars that run on electricity would not be affected.
While fossil fuel emissions affect all of France and, indeed, the whole planet, Paris is a hotspot for particle pollution.
France, along with the United Kingdom, made headlines earlier this summer by announcing plans to phase out sales of gasoline- and diesel-engined cars by 2040, but it appears the city of Paris has an even earlier target in mind.
The climate plan will be submitted to the Council of Paris for a vote in November.
In recent months, French Ecology Minister Nicolas Hulot prohibits sale of all petrol and diesel-fueled vehicles across country by 2040, explaining that y plan to reach target of zero carbon emissions in 2050.
Many Parisians do not own cars, relying on extensive public transport systems and, increasingly, fast-burgeoning networks offering bikes, scooters and low-pollution hybrid engine cars for shot-term rental.
The city's efforts to cut carbon emissions from cars follow a rise in air pollution, with the air quality reaching an "alert threshold" previous year according to the pollution-monitoring group Airparif. In July, Hidalgo banned cars built before 1997 from driving in the city during daylight on weekdays. On the Champs-Élysées, noise levels dropped 54 percent. Hidalgo also introduced car-free days and zones as well as a 20-mph (32 kph) speed limit throughout the city.
