After spending millions in creating the brand Tata Zica, Tata Motors decided to let go the name because it sounded too similar to the ‘Zika’ virus, which has been pronounced by some experts as deadlier then Ebola outbreak.
Thus as a CSR – Corporate Social Responsibility, Tata Motors gave up on the brand name Zica of their new car. In deciding the new name of their small car, Tata Motors asked for the help of their fans and existing customers.
The activity was named Fantastico Hunt. This resulted in Tata Motors getting engagement from 48 million enthusiasts, 12 million video views and over 37,000 different name suggestions. After going through each of those names, Tata Motors has finally revealed the top three contenders. And they are – Tata Adore, Tata Civet, and Tata Tiago.
