Powerstar V3
Ready for the heavyweight bout – Powerstar’s V3

Powerstar V3 is ready for any heavyweight bout.

Just like a heavyweight boxer, the Powerstar V3  stands – waiting, concentrating, muscles taut and skin glistening with perspiration – its energy pulsating through its 26-ton body.

The hulking mass is the V3 2642 6×4 premium long-haul truck tractor, the flagship product of Powerstar, a truck brand of Ever Star Industries (Pty) Ltd.

The almost seven metre long model confidently entered the competitive commercial vehicle ring in 2013 and has steadily gained in popularity and sales, to become Powerstar’s top selling product and a force to be reckoned with in the industry.

As a dynamic vehicle that can be pushed to the limit, it has also set a benchmark of quality amongst Chinese brands. The V3 2642 model is the first in the V3 model range launched by Powerstar to complement’s its existing model range in South Africa.
