In principle, the E.646 was an improved successor model of the E.636. Double motors were used to increase the power output. Thus, in comparison to the E.636 it had an power output of 3780kW instead of 2100kW. In 1958 and 1959, the first five prototypes were built, followed by a first series of 32 locomotives.
The look was initially copied from the E.636. However, from 1961 the nose shape of the locomotive was modernised. The following series of this machine were delivered with a convenient nose and two windscreens. After reliably hauling express and push-pull trains for many years, the last locomotives were driven onto the siding in 2009/2010.
