Present at the event were Motorola India's General Manager, Amit Boni and Flipkart's Vice President, Retail, and Head Strategic Brand Alliances, Michael Adnani. The latter revealed that the company in 10 months sold 3 million Moto devices that includes the Moto E, Moto G, Moto X, Moto G (Gen 2), Moto X (Gen 2), and the Moto 360 smartwatch. Notably, the figures do not include sales of the Google Nexus 6, which is made by Motorola.
The company however did not reveal the breakup of figures between various Moto devices sold in the country. Considering that Motorola launched a total of five smartphones in the 10-month period, we can expect that these handsets contributed mostly to the massive 3 million figure.
Motorola India alongside also announced that the first exclusive Motorola customer experience zones will be set up in Bengaluru, and that additional experience zones will also be launched in metro cities soon. No precise time-frame has been announced however.
To recall, Motorola India back in November announced that it sold 2.5 million Moto smartphones in India. At an event in September last year, Flipkart's Michael Adnani had claimed that it sold over 1.6 million units of its Moto (Moto E, Moto G and Moto X) devices in the first seven months of sales - since the first exclusive Flipkart launch of the Moto G in February.
Earlier this week, Motorola, which was acquired by computer maker Lenovo Group, finally entered the Chinese market with a full fleet of its popular smartphones, namely the Moto G LTE, Moto X, and Moto X Pro.
