The F0 supermini built by BYD is a clone of Toyota Aygo. It was launched as BYD F1 at the 2007 Guangzhou motor show. In July 2008, BYD announced that the car’s name was changed to F0 (to avoid confusion with the Formula One auto racing). The F0 went on sale on September 2, 2008.

Only one engine option has so far been offered (as of November 2013), a 1.0 liter of 50kW and 90Nm, which is mated to a 5MT. In September 2013, AMT versions were launched, employing a semi-automatic gearbox.

The F0 was the second best-selling supermini in China in 2012, with 7,996 sales. It lagged behind Chery QQ but was ahead of rivals including Suzuki Alto, Changan Benni, Chevy/Baojun Spark, and Geely Panda.

Annual sales were 52,565 in 2013 and 38,179 in 2014.
