The VW sausage is available in 12.5 and 25 centimeter (5 and 10-inch) sizes. They even have their own part number and the most popular version is the currywurst, accounting for 6.4 million sales alone.
As if making sausages wasn't enough, Volkswagen also makes ketchup, which it packages together with three wursts and gifts to customers. Ketchup production also reached record levels of 536,826 kilograms. Yes, that's over 500 tons, which would be the weight of 240 Touareg SUVs or 560 Up! city cars. We have no exact numbers at this moment, but we're pretty sure VW Ketchup outsold the XL1 in terms of… weight.
Since we don't have anything else to tell you about VW's record-setting sausages, we thought you might want to know that in 2006 Renault crash-tested a sausage. It was all part of the Bastille Day celebration that year and the ad saw various foods being smashed against a wall. There was a sausage from Germany, sushi from Japan and a giat Swedish crisp bread.
