The B50 was first unveiled at the Beijing Auto Show in April 2008 and went on sale on May 16, 2009. Developed in cooperation with Italdesign Giugiaro, the B50 underpins Mazda6 platform while powered by a VW sourced 1.6 liter engine. FAW has joint ventures with Mazda as well as Volkswagen so the technology acquired to develop the B50 was licensed.
