The DRG procured a heavy electric locomotive to haul long passenger trains on the electrified Bavarian main lines. It chose a 2'BB2' locomotive from numerous designs, which should be provided with the the same motors as the also planned class E91 goods locomotive. However, with the new design, the DRG abandoned the previous construction of the electric locomotives with a large, slowly running motor and decided to use four smaller output motors instead. Each group had two motors. A layshaft driven yesckshaft via inclined connecting rods was coupled to two driven axles by coupling rods. The locomotive with a weight of 140 t was one of Germany's heaviest electric locomotives ever built. It had a power output of 2,200 kW and reached a top speed of 90 km/h.
The manufacturers delivered the locomotives in 1924 /1925 to the DRG's Bavarian Group Administration, which served them as class EP 5 with the numbers 21 501-535. In 1927 they were given the designation E 52 01-35. The 29 locomotives that remained with the Bundesbahn after the war were designated class 152 from 1968. In February 1973, the DB scrapped the last locomotive of this class: the 152 014.
