Based on the Eurosprinter concept the ES 64 U was developed as a universal electric locomotive with a top speed of 230 km/h (140 mph). The series ES 64 U is only capable of operating on the 15 kV 16.7 Hz AC supply. It is in service in Austria with ÖBB as Class 1016. Unlike the F series, all U series are equipped with quill drive instead, thus reducing the track forces. In September 2006, manufacturer claimed, that the locomotive No. 1216 050-5 owned by ÖBB has reached the top-speed of 357km/h (222mph) on the Nuremberg-Munich high-speed rail line, pulling only one car.
