The M6 is a seven-seat MPV built by BYD auto. A lookalike of Toyota Previa, it was launched in April 2009 at the Shanghai Auto Show and released in July 2010. On September 29, 2010, Warren Buffett, Bill Gates, and Charlie Munger pitched the copycat car at a launching event in Beijing.

In February 2013, a facelifted version of the M6 went on sale. Besides a refreshed appearance, it got an additional engine option, a BYD-made 2.4L. For 2014, BYD is likely to launch models with a new automatic gearbox: a dual cluth transmission (DCT).

The M6 failed to achieve similar success as other BYD copycat cars (mainly the F0, F3, S6). Only 1,134 units were sold in the whole year of 2012. The 2013 sales reached 6,521. In 2014, only 6,356 units were sold.
