Development and deployment:
In 1933, the then Deutsche Reichsbahn Gesellschaft (DRG) commissioned AEG to construct the Series BR E 18, with the aim of addressing the growing demand for services on the route between Berlin and Munich. The existing Series E 04 that at that time had already proven its abilities, could attain a top speed of 150 km/h. The Series E 18 was then built with the same chassis and engine as the E 04. In test runs between Munich and Augsburg, the first E 18 achieved a top speed of 165 km/h.

Deployment
The above result was the reason why the DRG commissioned the firm AEG for the production of a series of this locomotive type. The first locomotive of this new series, the E 18 01 - was delivered to the DRG in 1935. In 1937, the E 18 22 was exhibited at the World Exhibition in Paris. The locomotive won the Grand Prix prize. The Austrian railways ordered eight of these locomotives in the same year. Up until 1940, 53 locomotives of the Serie E 18 were put into service with the DRG. After this construction came to a halt due to the War. The last locomotive of the Series BR 118 was only taken out of service by the DB in 1984.
