The 520 was Lifan’s first entry into the automobile business, being the inaugural model of its car lineup. It premiered at the Chongqing motor show in March 2005 and went on sale in January, 2006. In April 2008, Lifan released a hatchback version of the 520, the 520i.

While Lifan insists that the 520 is not a copycat car, many believe that it is derived from the Citroen Elysee (a variant of Citroen Fukang), with which it shares a 2540mm wheelbase. The similarities can been in not only the body structure but interior styling.

In late 2011, the second-gen 520 was unveiled in Guangzhou. The revamped model as named and released as 530 in 2013.
