France announced earlier this year it plans to ban sales of diesel and gas-powered cars by 2040, partly as a response to heavy air pollution.

Parisian officials have already attempted to cut down on pollution in the French capital.
Other countries are also trying to cut down on vehicle pollution. The U.K. and India both plan to ban the sale of diesel and gas-burning vehicles over the next several decades.
