Amsterdam will ban gasoline or diesel cars and motorbikes from 2030



Cars and motorcycles that run on gasoline or diesel will be banned in the Amsterdam, Netherlands, starting 2030.

Starting next year, diesel cars older than 15 years will be banned on the A10 road around the Dutch capital.

Also, buses and vans emitting exhaust gases will no longer have access to downtown by 2022. Until 2025, the ban will be extended to boats, motorcycles and mopeds.

Thus, the city intends to encourage its inhabitants to switch to electric cars, offering charging stations to every buyer of such a vehicle. Authorities expect the second-hand electric car market to grow significantly in the coming years. 

Starting in 2025, there will need to be between 16,000 and 23,000 EV charging stations to make the project viable. At present, there are only 3,000 such stations in Amsterdam.
