Look, the CA government is NOT stupid. They get 25 cents in taxes off every gallon of fuel you burn. ZEV's will put an immediate crimp on their revenue stream, where as blended hybrids and extended range vehicle will still allow them a revenue stream.

Everyone has a piece of the oil revenue pie, so don't look for anyone to push for a starvation diet.

I suspect this will just be swapped to similar taxes on electricity and or eventually hydrogen refills.
Toll roads would better capture all the different "fueling" approaches people will end up using, since some will have home electricity generation, hydrogen generation, alcohol distilling, etc., unless you prefer a progressive tax code where some renewables are taxed higher than others.
