To renew the fleet of the CSD, Skoda developed the 2nd generation of universal electric locomotives from the second half of the 1970s, out of which derives the class S 499.2. The letter "S" stands for alternating current. The two prototype locomotives were delivered in 1984 and thoroughly tested. With an hourly power output of 3,060 kW, the locomotives reached a top speed of 120 km/h. Ten serial locomotives with the new class designation 263 were delivered in 1988. The locomotives were used in express and goods train traffic.
