By 2040 in France will not drive cars with gasoline and diesel enginesJune 15, 2019
France is going to ban the sale of new cars using diesel or gasoline as fuel in 2040.
This was stated by Elizabeth Born – Minister of Transport of the Republic. Expressing her opinion on the law on mobility, the official noted that the organization of a large number of charging stations will contribute to the spread of cars using electric traction, and will prohibit the exploitation of automotive equipment that runs on gasoline and diesel fuel.
For the first time, two years ago, Nicolas Hulot, a former minister for the environment, suggested stopping the sale of cars equipped with gasoline and diesel power units.
The French Republic has a goal of carbon neutrality, so the government should pursue a policy that includes a ban on the sale of automotive technology that uses fossil fuels by 2040. Since the beginning of the reign of Macron, the “climate plan, which will be formalized by law,” has been implemented – summed up her speech by Elizabeth Born. Now residents of multi-storey buildings may officially require the installation of charging stations.
