Why Tata plans to rename newly launched car

Indian carmaker Tata Motors has launched its forthcoming Zica hatchback despite a controversy over the car's name.

Tata Motors said that "as a socially responsible company", it had decided to rebrand the vehicle after the similarly-named Zika virus sparked a global health emergency.

The car was on display in the Indian capital Delhi at the country's annual auto show.
