"Though the business situation improved substantially over the course of the second quarter, the environment continues to be characterised by considerable uncertainty due to the ongoing coronavirus pandemic," said a Continental statement.

"It thus remains difficult to gauge possible further adverse consequences on production, the supply chain and demand. For this reason, Continental is currently still refraining from providing an outlook for the 2020 business year."

Continental will report its interim report for the first half of 2020 on 5 August, 2020.
