Three locomotives, DeKi 301 to 303, were built in 1967.
The design was broadly based on the earlier  Class DeKi 200 locomotives, with four 230 kW traction motors, although the non-standard bogie design of the DeKi 200 was not used. The cab window sun visors of the DeKi 200 were also discontinued on the DeKi 300.
