A brand new car which was about to be unveiled by Tata Motors India will now wait until rebranding take effect following the emergency of Zika virus.

The new vehicle that was to be renamed Zica will have to be rebranded and given a new name.

The car was shown for the first time on Wednesday at the Auto Expo 2016 on New Delhi’s outskirts.

Tata Motors said in a statement Tuesday that the car would carry the Zica nameplate during the exhibition, but a new name will be announced in a few weeks. Zica is an abbreviation of “Zippy Car.”

The company said it decided to rebrand the car to empathize with the hardships caused by the outbreak of the Zika virus in many countries.

The World Health Organization has declared the Zika virus a global emergency because of its explosive spread across the Americas.

Zika is a disease caused by Zika virus that is spread to people primarily through the bite of an infected Aedes species mosquito
