Two Tesla Motors Inc production executives are leaving the company as it prepares for the Model 3: report

, International

The mass-market Model 3 received deposits for 400,000 reservations in the weeks after the March 31 unveiling of the prototype.

Two top manufacturing executives are leaving Tesla Motors Inc., including the global head of production, at a time when the electriccar company is about to release its most important car: the mass-production Model 3.

Greg Reichow, Tesla’s vice-president of production and one of its highest-paid executives, and Josh Ensign, vice-president of manufacturing, will leave the company. A Tesla spokesperson confirmed both departures and said Reichow will remain until his replacement is found.

A person familiar with the situation who isn’t authorized to speak about the matter said the executive changes are linked to delays, glitches, and a recall that have bedeviled Tesla’s Model X. Tesla denied any connection between the departures and production problems with its SUV. “This is not about the Model X,” said a Tesla spokesperson. “After being at Tesla for over five years and leading its production team for the past three years, Greg Reichow has announced his intention to take a leave of absence from Tesla so that he can have a well-earned break.”
