The National French Railways (SNCF) put these electric locomotives, which were up until then the most powerful in French history, into service in 1969 as the CC 6500. A total of 74 locomotives were built in three series featuring different side wall designs. During their initial years of operation, these locomotives were used to draw renowned express trains such as the "Mistral" or the "Capitole" due to their maximum speed of 200 km/h.
