What’s It’s really Like Behind the Wheel of an Electric Truck

Some of us have been able to get a taste of what it’s really like behind the wheel of an electric truck, but in this video Daniel Louisy brings his own inimitable style to give us some insights into the experience. 

He hasn’t been on PowerTorque’s Video of the Week for a while, but Daniel makes a welcome return with this video review of an electric truck in Germany.For those unfamiliar with his work, it’s not really clear whether Daniel is a new breed of operator, trucker or influencer, but he is entertaining. 

He has grown his Ashville Aggregates operation from a small building business to a major aggregates logistics enterprise running a serious tipper fleet across London and running four trains of aggregate into the city every week.

“You have to work to your strengths, and YouTube videos is one of mine,” says Daniel, as one of his full-time videographers captures the interview for the next Ashville Weekly episode..

The Ashville Aggregates YouTube channel has more than 200,000 subscribers, and the ‘Ashville Weekly’ bulletins frequently get in excess of 250,000 views. More than 1.5 million people watched his ‘A Day in the Life of a Construction Entrepreneur’ episode, and 238,000 tuned in to see him crash a brand new Mercedes-Benz Actros demonstrator into the back of a VW Golf.

So why do so many people watch every week? Well it helps that it’s entertaining (where else do you go to watch someone play golf with a Liebherr clamshell and a VW Golf?), and that frontman Daniel is charismatic, outspoken, and extremely likeable. But the main reason why it’s such compelling viewing, is simply because this self-made boss has a great story to tell.

This video sees Daniel stepping away from his stories about dramas of getting gravel and sand deliveries, and heading to Germany to take a truck around the test track and give us his impressions of the drive and tell us what it’s really like behind the wheel of an electric truck.
