Their striking design makes the class E 94 locomotives some of the most well-known electric locomotives in Germany. The reasonable construction of the locomotive had also effectively proven that with an axle hung drive the locomotive was able to reach a maximum speed of 100 km/h. The remarkable hourly output of the E 94 was 3,240 kW and the accelaration output even 3,900 kW. The locomotive was disrespectfully nicknamed the “Eisenschwein” (Iron pig) at the DR after the war.
