Motorola India today announced 100 new ‘Moto Hubs’ in Karnataka, across the top 8 cities with a focus of strengthening retail presence in the southern region. Moto Hub provides easy access and availability of all products to customers, where they will be able to experience the entire portfolio of Motorola devices at convenient locations including the recently launched Moto Z2 force and Moto X4.
Motorola has been aggressively increasing its retail presence in South India; a market that has witnessed significant growth in the recent past. According to GFK, Karnataka is the second biggest smartphone market by state in India with over 6 lakh smartphones sold every month, thus contributing 8% of the total smartphones sold in India. Bengaluru further contributes 50% of the total smartphones sold in Karnataka and Motorola is among the top 5 brands in the city.
Sudhin Mathur, Managing Director, Motorola Mobility India said, “We are highly focused on sharing meaningful experiences with our customers and hence making their journey with our brand more memorable. We have received an overwhelming response at all the previously opened Moto Hubs across the country and are equally positive that the people of Karnataka will reciprocate with equal or more enthusiasm.”
As part of the strategy to consolidate its retail presence across the country, Motorola, earlier this month announced the opening of 50 new Moto Hubs in Mumbai and 25 Moto Hub stores in Kolkata. Furthermore, in January 2018, Motorola had announced the opening of 50 new Moto Hubs in New Delhi. Motorola has also collaborated with Poorvika Mobiles across 43 cities in Tamil Nadu, Pondicherry and Karnataka and with Big C and Lot Mobile stores across 55 cities in Andhra Pradesh and Telangana to provide retail access to consumers.
All Moto Hub stores house the entire portfolio of Motorola devices, including moto e4, moto e4 plus, moto c, moto c plus, moto g families including moto g5s plus, moto g5s, moto g5 plus and moto g5 as well as moto z franchise and motomods along with Motorola accessories like on-ear and in-ear headphones, moto shells and covers.
