Zica Eradicated

You may have never heard of Tata Motors, but they are the second largest manufacturer of automobiles (after Mahindra) in India.  
For several months now, they have been dropping hints about a new car, a sporty little hatchback powered by your choice of either a three-cylinder gas or a three-cylinder diesel engine.   
They named it the Zica, short for Zippy Car.  It was to be introduced to the public this week at New Delhi's Auto Expo.
Now, the company has announced that due to the similarity between Zica and Zika, the virus that is causing havoc in Central and South America, they are changing the name of the car.  
It will still carry the Zica identification at the auto show, but Tata will change the name before it hits the dealer showrooms.
