|The sooner the world rids itself from dirty diesel the better. Elon Musk is proven electric trucks are superior to diesel. Nothing beats the torque of an electric motor.|
Joining a number of major European cities that have resolved to phase out diesel cars from their municipal borders, the city government of Rome announced earlier this week to ban diesel cars from the center of the city by 2024.
Plans by the city government to exclude diesel-engine cars from the city center are among the most ambitious yet among European capitals; Rome would join Paris, which announced plans to ban diesel- and gas-engined cars by 2025, and all of the U.K., which aims to do the same on a nationwide level by 2040.
Rome also plans to achieve this measure, which would not apply to the entire city but rather its center, a year before Paris, Madrid, Athens and Mexico City plan to ban diesels within their borders by 2025.
