Škoda built 3 versions of their standard mixed traffic electric. Class 163 is a 3000 volt DC version, 263 is the 25,000 volt AC version and 363 is a dual voltage version. Top speed on all versions is 120 km/h, 74 mph.  Locomotives were divided between Slovakia and the Czech Republic, probably based upon their depot allocation at the time and certainly without regard to their numbers.
