    Hello, I heard that Tesla was featured in a Simpsons episode a while back.

    Does anyone know what year that ran so that I can watch it on Netflix?

    Thanks!

    Matt

    There were a few simpsons with EVs in them as far as I remember from when I used to watch the show.

    The main one I remember was when they were to test drive an EV at a local dealer and if they didn’t like it so much where they would buy it, they would get free tickets to a game or something? They ended up driving it through a river or pond and leaving it back at the dealer dissatisfied with its performance through, "wet conditions''.. haha!

    uh... guess there is some confusion. i know exactly what vfx stands for. just odd to see someone use that handle on a forum other than a technical visual effects forum.
