‘I pressed the brakes, the car SPED UP to 100mph’: Driver cheated death as his electric car went ROGUE

17

A driver who was trapped behind the wheel of an out-of-control Jaguar I-Pace has revealed how he cheated death as his car accelerated up to 100mph on the busy M62 motorway without brakes.

What Happened

Nathan Owen, 31, was on his way back from his first day at a new job when his 2019 electric car started malfunctioning, sparking a huge police operation to bring his car to a stop after 35 minutes of hell.

But he told how his car had also gone rogue on the motorway in December, this time reaching up to 120mph. He claims Jaguar handed him his car back 24 hours after he had taken it in to be looked at.

Recalling His Latest Run-in

Speaking exclusively about his latest run-in, the crisis support worker admitted: ‘In the back of my mind, I was thinking I’m going to end up crashing the car, I’m going to kill myself or I’m going to kill an innocent person on the roads.’

Mr Owen, originally from North Wales, added: ‘The car was in its own world – it just had no brakes. The worst thing about it is that it’s happened before.’

Dramatic pictures show the black Jaguar, worth up to £80,000 when new, wedged in between two Matrix patrol cruisers from Merseyside Police on the eastbound carriageway between J11 for Birchwood and J12 for Eccles. 

Investigation is Ongoing

Jaguar Land Rover has confirmed it is investigating yesterday’s incident as a priority. 

It comes amid concerns over the safety of electric cars and follows another case in October where an EV driver was kidnapped by his runaway £30,000 MG ZS. 

Still shaken up by the terrifying incident, Mr Owen told how he was driving home from his new job working as a crisis support worker with children in Ormskirk, Liverpool, when he tried to overtake another car at around 2.30pm.
