Newer cars are generally more fuel efficient than older ones.


And a lot cleaner. Let's ban gas mowers and power washers. And all those silly rental mopeds that go zooming around town without any emission control devices.

Seems this would only be for new cars, I guess the thought there is to really convince people buying new cars to look at EV now.

Sorry, but an EV is twice the price of a basic gas car.  And since we're talking about street parking, presumably outside of one's home where they'll want to charge it, I'm sure the city has bylaws against running 240v extension cords across the sidewalk.  

 

Incentivize by incentivizing, not by punishing.
