The Senova D70 is a midsize sedan built by Beijing Auto (BAIC) on the GM2900 platform it bought, which gave rise to the first-gen Saab 9-5. The name of the BAIC-brand car has been changed several times. Initially it was called "C70," a concept/EV version of which was showcased at the 2010 Beijing motor show. Two year later, BAIC unveiled the production model, which carried the nameplate "C70G." At the 2012 Guangzhou motor show, the automaker launched the "Shenbao" (Senova) brand and re-badged the C70G as ‘Shenbao D320." On May 11, 2013, the D series hit the showrooms as simply Senova; later that year, the name D70 appeared.

In 2009 BAIC bought from GM the equipment and know-how for producing Saab 9-3 and 9-5. With these assets, it built a plant in Shunyi, Beijing, to make Saab-derived cars. The Senova lineup is expected to expand in 2014 to include those based on the Saab 9-3 and a performance version–Senova Aero (D60)–based on the 9-5.

By the end of 2013, 10,011 units of the D70 were sold. To promote the sedan, BAIC enlisted Nicolas Cage, who appeared in a short video "Town of Car Legends." In 2014, only 3,533 deliveries were made.
