Unveiled back in December 2015, launch of Tata Zica has been delayed to February. It was in the first week of December that media was invited to test drive the new Zica. During that time, though there was no official announcement, the rumor in the air was that Zica would be launched by the second week of January.
But then came the news of Mahindra KUV100 launch, a car which is not exactly a competition, but intersected the Tata Zica’s expected price range. Mahindra KUV100 launch, and the upcoming Auto Expo are probably the reasons behind the delay in launch of new Zica. Though delayed, Tata Motors has managed to keep the buzz around Zica active over social media platforms.
Apart from this, we have also heard that some Tata Motors dealers have started contacting prospective buyers via emails about the arrival of new Zica. Few dealers have already started receiving display units. One such showroom is in Trivandrum, Kerala, where the Zica was recently spotted by Bobin Xavier.
A completely new car, which is not only built on a new platform, but also features a new design language and new generation engines, Zica project has been developed over a period of four years.
To be launched in India by the second week of February, Tata Zica bookings are expected to open on the 3rd February, 2016. Powered by new 3 cyl engines – Revotorq 1.2 liter diesel engine and Revotron 1.2 liter engine, price of Zica is expected to be in the range of INR 3.8 lakh to INR 6.5 lakh.
