Mercedes-Benz has announced the launch of Antos, a new heavy-duty truck specifically designed for short-radius distribution transport use.


For this specific goal, the Antos will offer round visibility and easy configuration and operation for single-day tours.

Mercedes-Benz Antos - Interior Design Sketch“The general styling and the design idiom of the Mercedes-Benz Antos reveal its relationship with the Mercedes-Benz Actros, but the very different requirements for the cab give it an unmistakable character of its own.”

The 2.30-meter-wide cabs, designed specifically for the short-radius distribution transport market, are available in either short ‘S’ or medium-size ‘M’ versions.

The Antos models will be available as either platform trucks or tractor units in a total of 67 different wheelbase lengths, with the axle spacing ranging from a minimum of 2650 mm up to a maximum of 6700 mm.

Mercedes-Benz Antos - Detail The range of engines will include 13 “Blue Efficiency Power” units, delivering from from 175 kW (238 hp) to 375 kW (510 hp), and meeting the Euro VI emission standard.

The vehicles are currently being tested in camouflaged guise. The public debut is scheduled for the Commercial Vehicle IAA in September.

Heavy-duty short-radius distribution operations

Heavy-duty short-range distribution involves, above all, the regional transportation of commodities such as food, with the retail sector one of the key areas served.

The platform trucks with refrigerated or box bodies that are so often used here spend more or less equal proportions of their time in urban traffic, on country roads and on the motorway.
