"Seeking to influence other states and Washington, California air regulators passed sweeping auto emission standards Friday that include a mandate to have 1.4 million electric and hybrid vehicles on state roads by 2025.
The California Air Resources Board unanimously approved the new rules that require that one in seven of the new cars sold in the state in 2025 be an electric or other zero-emission vehicle.
The plan also mandates a 75 percent reduction in smog-forming pollutants by 2025, and a 50 percent reduction in greenhouse gas emissions from today's standards."

I hope it won't entail any more government/ tax payer subsidies.

Here's the new regulations as presented to the Board. It's too early to find the rule they actually approved, so maybe it's changed, but I can't find anything in it which supports the claim made by FOX that it would mandate such a thing:
