Paris seeks alternatives to diesel


Recommended Posts

Scania Group Press Release  /  February 14, 2017

The French capital is now taking active measures to phase out diesel cars, buses and trucks with a proposed total ban by 2025.

The city has already banned diesel vehicles registered before 1997 from entering the city and recently extended the ban to vehicles registered before 2001. Paris has introduced a color-coded sticker scheme to bar these diesel-powered vehicles from entering the city centre.

Parisian transporters are therefore actively seeking alternatives for vital services, such as goods deliveries and passenger transport.

Franprix, a leading food retailer in the French capital, is presently operating a fleet of natural gas-powered Scania trucks, which in addition to reducing noise, also substantially reduce emissions of nitrogen oxide and particulate matter.

Meanwhile, several bus companies engaged by the City of Paris in school transport are also adopting alternatives to diesel.
