Surging interest from index-tracking funds sent Tesla Inc.’s price surging to a record $695 in the auction used by exchanges to close trading, almost 4% above its average price Friday.

More than 69 million shares traded in the electronically managed closing print, a key price that will act as a starting point for passive funds that track the S&P 500. It came on a day of extreme volume for the electric vehicle maker, which will enter the storied equity benchmark on Monday. Almost 200 million Tesla shares changed hands in the regular session
