The latest Emil Zátopek type locomotives are designed for continuous operation along the railway corridors of all the countries neighbouring the Czech Republic and Hungary. Thanks to the modular design of the electric parts, the locomotives can be operated using different power supply systems – 25 kV/50 Hz and 15 kV /16.7 Hz with AC voltage, and, potentially, 3 kV DC.

The Emil Zátopek type locomotives are also designed to incorporate economic regenerative braking systems in accordance with the European safety and control system ECTS/ERTMS. Thanks to its versatility, the Emil Zátopek type locomotive can operate throughout Europe.
