Top-class results. On the road and on the balance sheet

  • payload optimisation based on design solutions that reduce the vehicle’s unladen weight, e.g. with the two-bellows air suspension, shock absorbers, and a light direct-drive transmission*
  • low fuel consumption thanks to the Telligent® engine management system: with electronic engine management for the high-torque, 6-cylinder in-line engines with 6, 7 or 12 litre capacity and the optional engine start/stop system
  • maximum torque generated in the low-consumption engine speed range (1100 to 1600 rpm)
  • cost-effective compliance with Euro 5 regulations thanks to BlueTec® SCR diesel technology from Mercedes-Benz
  • perfectly coordinated powertrain for optimum power transmission: with 6, 9 and 16-speed manual transmission
  • low-wear gear changes with the Telligent® gearshift (optional for Axor models from 210 kW (286 hp) in conjunction with a 16-speed direct-drive transmission) or the Telligent® automated gearshift (optional for Axor models with 175 kW (238 hp) in conjunction with a 6-speed transmission)
  • available as an option: the Mercedes PowerShift automated gearshift** for more ride comfort thanks to faster gear changes and more economy due to reduced unladen weight
  • the optional engine start/stop system for Axor vehicles up to 240 kW (326 hp) also saves on fuel and exhaust emissions
  • long service intervals and robust engineering: 100,000 kilometres for long-distance haulage, as much as 120,000 kilometres with the Telligent® maintenance system (standard with Axor models up to 240 kW (326 hp), otherwise optional)
  • low-wear, high-performance brake system; optional Telligent® brake system with break-lining wear equalisation
  • the new plastic bumpers and turbobrake achieve further reductions in unladen weight, saving more than 80 kg compared with a retarder and the Mercedes PowerShift automated gearshift
  • short downtimes thanks to a design concept based on ease of repair
  • reliability and durability based on exceptionally high operational performance

* Available for Axor models with 205 kW, 210 kW (286 hp) and 240 kW (326 hp) engines

** Available for Axor semitrailer tractors and dropsiders from 265 kW (360 hp)
