The F6 is a midsize sedan developed by BYD through copying the structure and design of the seventh-gen Toyota Camry. It was launched at the Shanghai Auto Show in April 2007, rolled off the production line in Shenzhen on August 8 that year, and hit the market on March 18, 2008. The 2008 and 2009 models got two engine options: a BYD-built 2.0 liter and Mitsubishi 4G69S4M 2.4 liter. A third choice, a 1.8L (BYD483QA), was added in 2010, while the 2.4L was dropped for 2011.

Production of the F6 was terminated in the second half of 2012 when it was replaced by the G6 (an upgraded F6) and "Surui" (the re-designed F6).

On October 10, 2007, BYD unveiled a hybrid version of the F6, the F6DM (F6 "Dual Mode"), which has a driving system similar to that of the F3DM, and announced it would be released in late 2008. The automaker, however, later decided to abondon the plan of mass-producing the PHEV due to dim sales prospects.

12,894 units of the F6 were sold in 2011.
