In the 1980s, the DR purchased electric dual-mode locomotives to improve operating procedures in the steadily growing cross-border traffic on the railway lines between Berlin–Dresden–Prag.

However, the locomotive builder in the GDR, LEW Hennigsdorf, was working at full capacity at the time. Hence, the Czech locomotive factory Skoda, which already had gathered various experiences with such machines, received the order. The CSD series ES 499.1 and 499.2 served as a basis for the construction and design. However, new ground was broken with the German 15 kV/16⅔ Hz power system. The double order contained 15 locomotives series 372 for the CSD and 20 locomotives series 230 for the DR.

The universal locomotives were used to haul passenger and goods trains. With an hourly power output of 3.260 kW, the locos reached a maximum speed of 120 km/h. In Germany, the series is affectionately called "Dumpling Press" whereas its Czech counterpart is called "Bastard".
