Zika virus hits Tata Motors


Tata Motors

The rapidly-spreading Zika virus has hit an Indian company. Tata Motors has been constrained to drop the name Zica, short for Zippy Car, for its new hatchback model to be launched shortly. Since the mosquito-borne virus has been declared an international health emergency, the company believes the name to be not a good omen. The car will, however, be showcased in the biennial New Delhi motor show starting Wednesday, while the company will think about a new name for it.
