Vehicle Information
Owner: Elec-Taurus Dealership
Use: Electric saloon
First Appearance: "Beyond Blunderdome"

The Elec-Taurus is a prototype electric car.

History[edit]

Homer once test drove an Elec-Taurus in order to get the free gift (it turns out to be movie tickets). The drive reveals that the car can survive underwater, but electrocutes any lifeforms in the water with it. Homer quickly drops it off back at the dealership, broken and on fire. It is revealed that the car has a voice-chip, as it calls 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).
