The Eado is a compact sedan designed by Carminati Stefano at Changan’s Italian office. It is the production model of the Changan C201 concept ("Meirenyu" or Mermaid) showcased at the 2010 Beijing Auto Show. The name "Eado" was unveiled at the 2011 Frankfurt motor show. Deliveries started on March 27, 2012, with only the 1.6L/MT models available; the AT ones were released in June that year. A second engine option, a turbo-charged 1.5 liter, was added in January 2014.

Two electric versions of Eado have been developed. The Eado Hybrid employs a 1.5L gasoline engine assisted by a 20.5kW electric motor drawing energy from a 144V 6Ah nickel-hydrogen battery pack; it claims a combined fuel economy of 5.4L per 100km. The upcoming all-electric Eado will be equipped with an electric motor that can put out up to 90kW of power, and weigh 1610kg.

The hatchback version of the Eado, called Eado XT or "Zhishang XT," was launched at the 2013 Shanghai motor show and on August 28 that year.

In 2013, with 90,723 sales Eado became the most popular Changan-brand passenger car. In 2014, 154,885 units were sold.
