Several top executives at Rivian Automotive Inc., including the vice president overseeing body engineering and its head of supply chain, have departed the electric-vehicle maker in recent months.
The exits, confirmed by a Rivian spokeswoman, are the latest developments in what has been a challenging period for Rivian, which has been rolling out its first all-electric models but last year missed a critical production target of completing 25,000 vehicles. The company said it fell short of the goal by about 700 vehicles in part because of difficulty getting parts.
