On 29 May 2018 PKP Intercity signed the definitive 367 million PLN (around 85 million EUR) contract for 20 Griffin electrics from Newag. The contract also covers maintenance up to the P4 heavy intermediate level, and incorporates an option clause for ten more locomotives. Deliveries are to take place over the coming 30 months.
