RZD 2ES10 -Granit-  
The first locomotive base model of Ural Locomotives is the eight-axle double freight locomotive 2ES10 'Granit' for 3kV DC networks. 221 units of this model have been ordered.

Two different liveries
The first eleven locomotives, the designated 2ES10-001 to 011 were delivered in a two tone grey livery, symbolizing the stone color of granite, referring to the name of the series. Starting with 2ES10-012, the standard red and grey RZD-livery was applied.

Front window
The design of the front window of the 2ES10 was changed when series production started. The 2ES10-001 and 002 have rectangular windows, as of number 003 the new trapezium shape was introduced, more in harmony with the design language of the locomotive.

2ES10-012 sold to OAO Apatit mining company (now 2ES10-222)
Mining company OAO Apatit, located in Apatity, bought one 2ES10 locomotive. It took over unit 012, that was then renumbered as 2ES10-222 in October 2012, being the first available number after the planned RZD-series (221 units on order). For RZD, Ural locomotives built a new unit with number 012.
