BMW announced that it is creating a 1,000 extra jobs to meet strong demand for its 3-series vehicles, reports Bloomberg News.

The job creation, in both the production and research-and-development divisions, coincides with the company`s decision to eliminate August vacation shutdowns at certain plants.

Bloomberg says that BMW is selling every 3-series vehicle it is producing, with the company in the process of expanding its US plant as well as planning to build a new factory, either in Germany or Central Europe.
