Police are forced to RAM £80,000 electric Jaguar I-Pace to stop it as it raced down the busy M62 motorway without brakes after suffering system fault with terrified driver trapped inside

Police were forced to ram an out-of-control electric car after a ‘horrifying fault’ left the eco-vehicle tearing down the busy M62 without any brakes.

Cop cars swarmed the motorway to save a driver after their runaway £80,000 Jaguar I-Pace suffered an ‘electrical fault’.

Officers from Merseyside Police and Greater Manchester Police used specialist tactics to ram the vehicle and block it between a number of police vehicles, to eventually bring the car to a stop.

Dramatic pictures from the scene show the black Jaguar wedged in between two Matrix patrol cruisers from Merseyside Police.

The terrifying incident unfolded on the eastbound carriageway on Wednesday, between J11 for Birchwood and J12 for Eccles.

All lanes were closed for a short while with traffic stopped as police responded to the incident.

Two lanes later reopened, with a further two closed, causing major delays of almost an hour and congestion backed up ahead of rush hour.

North West Motorway Police revealed what had happened on social media, writing: ‘Police currently have a lane 3 and 4 closure on M62 EB J11 to 12.

‘This is following the use of tactics to stop an electric vehicle with an electric fault where the driver was unable to brake. Motorway officers from Merseyside, Cheshire and GMP brought the vehicle to a safe stop.’

The Jaguar I-Pace is set to be discontinued before the company’s relaunch in 2025.

The car was reportedly only sold to make sure the company met its emissions targets.

The model has also been used as a rapid response vehicle for West Midlands Ambulance Service.

A Jaguar Land Rover spokeswoman said: ‘We are aware of an incident involving a Jaguar I-PACE on the M62 on the afternoon of March 6. An investigation is underway into the cause of the incident.’
