Tesla Inc. unveiled the highly anticipated Model Y crossover SUV on Thursday night, which Chief Executive Elon Musk predicted would sell better than the Model S, Model X and Model 3 combined.

The long-range Model Y, with a battery range of about 300 miles, will be available first and have a starting price of $47,000. Speaking to a crowd of fans at Tesla’s design center in Hawthorne, Calif., Musk touted the Model Y’s expected safety and performance, and said the crossover will have “the functionality of an SUV, but ride like a sports car.”
