In the 1980s, DR procured two-system electric locomotives in order to simplify the steadily growing traffic and operations in cross-border traffic between the GDR and Czechoslovakia. Due to the lack of experience in the field of two-system technology (GDR: AC voltage 15 kV / 16⅔ Hz, ČSSR: DC voltage 3 kV) and the full utilization of the electric locomotive manufacturer LEW in Hennigsdorf, the machines were based on the ČSD series ES 499.1 and 499.2. However, the Škoda locomotive factory had not yet built a machine for the 15 kV / 16⅔ Hz AC system, which is why the parts for the AC power supply were supplied from the GDR. Due to the needs of ČSD, Škoda received a double order with 15 BR 372 locomotives and 20 BR 230 locomotives for the DR.
