MRCE ES64U2: Standard configuration  
a picture from the early days, 1116 903 during a trial in Switzerland, back in 2000.

service numbers 1116 901-903, ES64U2 902-903 and ES64U2 001-052
53 machines have been delivered in the basic, standard configuration, homologated for Germany and Austria only. As 1116 901 is now property of Hupac and from 2005 to 2007 ten machines have been retrofitted as Bosporus Sprinter, 42 of thise are still in service as such: ES64U2 001-042. Some change operator every day, but most machines have had only one or two employers since their delivery. TX Logistik, BoxXpress.de, Lokomotion and the WLB from Austria have become the main customers of Dispolok together operating the majority of the ES64U2 machines.

Officially one can not speak about batches, as the number of machines built was raised gradually, closely following market demand. However, based on the designation of works numbers by Siemens, following delivery scheme can be made:
