Motorola now shipping 100,000 Moto X units from its US factory

Moto X ColoursMotorola has revealed that the Texas based manufacturing plant where Moto X is being assembled, is currently shipping 100,000 units per week. Not a huge number, but a decent start for the company, which is trying to bring the made-in-USA smartphone tag in fashion.

According to Motorola CEO Dennis Woodside, the Texas facility is capable of building millions of phones a year but they are going slow and easy, depending on the demand.

“When you set up to ramp a factory you need a plan, and we have shipment targets we need to make with our carrier partners, and where we need to be right now is 100,000 units and that’s where we are,” Woodside told Reuters in an interview.

Woodside has not revealed the exact Moto X sales numbers or the share of custom-designed Moto X units out of the total but he did say that custom orders were “substantial.”

To remind you, Moto X is currently available in select Latin American countries, Canada and US. There is still no word on whether company will ever release the phone in Europe or Asia. A cheaper version of Moto X is however said to be coming for emerging markets but there are no details available on that right now.
