First Appearance: "Beyond Blunderdome"

The Elec-Taurus is a prototype electric car.

History[edit]

The Elec-Taurus dealership

Homer once test drove an Elec-Taurus in order to get the free gift, which turned out to be tickets to a test screening of Mel Gibson's movie Mr. Smith Goes to Washington. The drive revealed that the car could survive underwater, but electrocuted any life in the water near it. Homer quickly dropped it off back at the dealership, broken and on fire. It is revealed that the car has a voice-chip, as it called out in distress.

Behind the Laughter[edit]

The Elec-Taurus is a portmanteau of "electric" and "Taurus." The latter of those words is a reference to the Ford Taurus, once the best selling car in United States. In design and concept, however, it more resembles the General Motors EV1, an experimental car produced at about the same time as the episode "Beyond Blunderdome" (in which the Elec-Taurus made its only appearance).
