Baojun Lechi is a re-badged first-gen Chevrolet Spark (or Daewoo Martiz). The supermini has been built by the three-way joint venture of SAIC, GM, and Wuling (SGMW). The first SGMW-made Spark was released on December 8, 2003, powered by a 0.8L engine. The 1.0L models were released in November 2014.

On July 18, 2010, SGMW launched the "Baojun" brand, which focuses exclusively on the Chinese market. In the second half of 2011, the bow-tie emblem of Chevrolet was replaced by the horse logo of Baojun.

The Spark/Lechi had been involved in a legal dispute in 2003-2005 with Chery QQ, a local copycat car that was released a few months earlier than the original in 2003. Despite all favorable evidence GM failed to get any direct compensation from Chery and was forced to accept a reconciliation by the Chinese government.
