The global car industry is alive and kicking, and the competition is as fierce as ever.

That\'s why Skoda a Czech car maker belonging to the Volkswagen group is planning to launch a new generation of Octavia its best selling model.

As usual no official confirmation of the launch has been given by Skoda representatives who always keep silence about new releases to the very last minute but there are many indications that the third model of Octavia will be launched at the Paris Motor Show in September 2012.

The current second generation of Octavia is already seven years old. And seven or eight years is the normal life cycle of a model at least in Volkswagen.

Octavia is enjoying very good sale, however Skoda cannot afford to keep manufacturing its models, event the most popular ones, for that long. Especially when it is competing with other global players such as Hyundai, which releases new generations of its models much more often.

And the Paris Motor Show 2012 could be the right place to launch the new model of Skoda\'s best selling car. The release of the new Octavia is tied to the expected launch of the seventh generation of the Volkswagen Golf as both models use the same chassis. And the new Golf will be released next year as well.
