France aims to end the sale of diesel and gasoline cars by 2040 as part of a five-year climate plan revealed Thursday by the country's new environment minister, Nicolas Hulot, ahead of the G20 summit in Hamburg. He said the goal would put a burden on vehicle manufacturers in France but the government has a few projects which "can fulfill that promise". The government will also end oil and gas exploration in French territory, eliminate coal-fired power plants by 2022 and encourage home owners to produce their own energy.
Right now, according to Reuters, diesel and gas cars comprise about 95 percent of France's new-car market, with EVs comprising just 1.2 percent.
He said the proposals such as the decision to end the sale of fossil fuel powered vehicles was a tall order and would constitute something of a "revolution", but solutions were available and French carmakers would be up to the task.
The move by France in taking on a leadership role in climate change commitments is nothing short of revolutionary and is something that all the world's countries should be emulating.
