The enormous traffic growth in the second half of the 1930s required shorter travel times of the passenger and freight trains to relieve the railway lines. After the electrification projects had come to a standstill in the wake of the economic crisis, new plans for the electrification of the main lines were envisaged, of which, however, due to the war, not all were implemented. By the end of 1937, therefore, a supply contract for the developement of the new series E 94, on the basis of the E 93, was signed with the company AEG.
