I doubt they would put it on EVs until way after they had driven ICE vehicles off the road. Besides the only EV sources that might be subject to a carbon tax would be coal, oil, and natural gas power plants; wind, solar, hydro-electric, tidal, etc. sources don't emit CO2.

The fleet:
2005 Jetta Wagon "Cranberry" (bought July 2011)
2004 Toyota Prius (bought August 2004)
1990 Mazda Miata (bought July 1989)
