The G6 is an upgraded version of the BYD F6, which was modeled upon Toyota Camry. When debuted at the 2010 Beijing motor show, it carried the nameplate " i6." The name was changed to G6 in late 2010. After several delays, the midsize sedan hit the market on September 26, 2011, and fully replaced the F6 in the following year. At BYD’s Shenzhen plant, it shares a platform and production line with the S6 SUV.

In 2012, the G6 got a BYD-made dual-clutch transmission in addition to the 5MT and 6MT. The DCT, said to be developed through imitating Volkswagen’s DSG, was mated to a turbo-charged 1.5 liter.

Sales of the G6 reached 25,556 in 2013. In 2014, only 8,112 units were sold.
