By 2025 diesel vehicles will be removed from four capital cities in the C40 group – Paris, Mexico City, Madrid and Athens. The cities have pledged to incentivise alternative vehicles and promote walking and cycling infrastructure.
Responding to the news, Jenny Bates Friends of the Earth air pollution campaigner, said:
“This bold move to get rid of diesels, which are the most polluting vehicles, is exactly what is needed in the UK to help clean up the illegal and dangerous levels of air pollution currently suffered by many of our cities, and which leads to 40,000 premature deaths a year.

“Sadiq Khan should follow suit and commit to phase out diesel vehicles from London by 2025.
“And, the government must lead the way by funding strong Clean Air Zones in all our cities and major towns, as well as switching funding from roads to sustainable transport.
“We need cleaner vehicles, and fewer of them. Getting rid of diesel is essential and we must also give people genuine alternatives to driving.”
