Controversial CEO of Tesla Elon Musk has said his company might build a compact electric car in Europe.

His comments came after experiencing problems parking his five-metre long Tesla Model X in Berlin.

“Possibly in Europe it would make sense to do, I guess, a compact car, perhaps a hatchback or something like that,” Musk said on Tuesday during an online conference on batteries.

“In the US, the cars tend to be bigger for personal taste reasons. In Europe, (they) tend to be smaller,” he said.

All Tesla modes are considerable longer than most European cars.
