Launched in 2001 and replaced by the Antos (which itself has disappeared) the Axor was aimed firmly at the fleet truck market. Operators not wanting all the trimmings that are included in the premium Actros tractor unit yet want to buy into Mercedes-Benz reliability.
On the UK’s roads the Axor was known as the ‘supermarket trolley’ as they were usually delivering to supermarkets – especially urban ones – usually as 4×2 tractor units.

The truck spanned rigid applications from 18 to 26 tonnes GVW and was available right up to 44 tonnes GTW as a tractor unit.
Used examples of the Axor 1824 can be found for sale starting from 2007 until the model's discontinuation in 2014 with the advent of Euro 6.
At this time the whole Axor range as discontinued and replaced with the (short-lived) Antos range at Euro 6.
