The dreaded Zika virus has
taken a toll on the Zica car name from Tata Motors. Tata Motors has announced that
it has decided to rename its soon-to-be launched hatchback. The car’s acronym
was “Zica”, derived from “Zippy Car”. “Empathising with the hardships being
caused by the recent “Zika” virus outbreak across many countries, Tata Motors,
as a socially responsible company, has decided to re-brand the car,” the
company said in a statement.
The new car is backed by Tata Motors’ “Made of
Great” campaign, with the motto, “What drives us from within is what makes us
great”. “Tata Motors is committed to doing what is right for its customers; the
car, which has been designed for young people, has already received
enthusiastic reviews from informed commentators, and the company is determined
to place it in the market addressing all relevant needs of the target audience,”
the Tata Motors statement said.
The new car is being showcased publicly for
the first time at the Auto Expo 2016, in New Delhi (Greater Noida) from
February 3 – 9, 2016. While it carries the ‘Zica’ label for the duration of the
event, the new name will be announced after a few weeks, ensuring all necessary
consumer/ branding and regulatory aspects are addressed, and the launch will
take place thereafter.
