The Zica is underpinned by an extensively modified version of the Tata Indica platform. The highlight of the Zica, according to reports, will be its new engines. On the petrol front, a 1.2-liter three-cylinder engine (an all-new engine from the ground up) will drive the Zica via a 5-speed manual transmission. The diesel engine is reported to be a 1.05-liter three-cylinder unit, and it could receive manual and automated manual transmissions.

The Zica will be produced at Tata’s Sanand plant in Gujarat. The name, according to Tata Motors, is derived from ‘Zippy Car’.
