HAMBURG (Reuters) - Continental AG is still looking at its corporate structure as part of a review launched more than a year ago, a source close to the matter said on Tuesday after a media report on a possible breakup of the car parts maker pushed its shares to a record high.
A possible separation of Continental's business related to combustion engines also remains on the agenda as the auto industry shifts its focus towards electronic vehicles, the person said.
Continental declined to comment.
The group has been considering various options for its business since 2016 and last year decided to keep its powertrain division after an internal review.
