This method is only for Moto E 2015 3G version ( Code name Otus ). Do not try On LTE version or on any other phone.

Disclaimer:
Code:
1.) I am not responsible for a bricked device if you don't follow all the instructions correctly.
2.) The development is still in initial stages. Try this on your own risk. Me or any other developer will not be responsible 
for your bricked devices.
All credits goes to @squid2 for creating the recovery and guiding me and @cybojenix for initial development.
I am merely putting all the things together and encapsulating in one thread.


Pre Requirements :

1.) Download Moto E drivers from http://androidxda.com/download-motorola-usb-drivers. Make Sure you Download the correct driver.
2.) Setup ADB By following Q 03 of http://forum.xda-developers.com/moto...-2015-t3044929 ( Thread) by Lucas Eugene.
2.) Unlocked Bootloader. ( Follow @Lucas Eugene Guide from http://forum.xda-developers.com/moto...-2015-t3045748.

Download and flash latest TWRP recovery for Moto E 2015 3G created by @squid2 from here http://forum.xda-developers.com/moto...-2015-t3084849 .

The steps to flash recovery are :-
1.) Put the downloaded recovery file in C:\Program Files\Android\android-sdk\platform-tools\
2.)Go to command prompt and while being in the platform tools folder enter.
Code:
adb devices ( this should detect your device )
adb reboot bootloader ( alternately you can press volume down and power button Simultaneously)
This should open fastboot mode on your devices.
Now give the following code
Code:
fastboot flash recovery twrp-otus-2.8.6-test4.img
adb reboot
The recovery is now flashed onto your devices.



Now for Rooting :

1.) Download latest SuperSu from here http://download.chainfire.eu/696/Sup...erSU-v2.46.zip.
2.) Put the SuperSu Zip at the root of your SD card.
3.) Now go into fast boot mode again by process described above.
4.) Flash the SuperSu zip from recovery from SD card.
5.) Reboot the Device and Voila.......You are Rooted.


In Any case do not use this if you are not familiar with the process.

Thanks to @squid2 , @cybojenix , @Lucas Eugene for the resources and Guides.

If you have any confusion about this. Please feel free to ask.

Download and Boot( Do not Install) TWRP recovery for Moto E 2015 3G created by @squid2 from here http://forum.xda-developers.com/moto...-2015-t3084849 .

Now here is the trick part. Do not flash the recovery for now. Instead boot it from cmd prompt because its under development.

Now for Rooting :

1.) Boot into Recovery. ( Do not flash it).
2.) Download latest SuperSu from here http://download.chainfire.eu/696/Sup...erSU-v2.46.zip.
3.) Put the SuperSu Zip at the root of your SD card.
4.) Flash the SuperSu zip from recovery from SD card.

What part of the guide you didnt understand. You will have to be very precise about following the method. you will probably brick your phone if you dnt do it properly. I will suggest first you understand all the things before trying.

ADB and fastboot are different things. To use fastboot, you have to get your phone into bootloader mode (turn off, hold PWR and VOL- for 3 seconds, then let go). Alternatively, you can enter bootloader mode while Android is running with ADB enabled by running the command "adb reboot bootloader". Make sure that your udev rules give you permissions to access your phone's USB device.

I've put out a new version (2.8.6-test4) that fixes an issue with loading the recovery from flash. While the procedure described here still works, you can now safely flash the recovery by running "fastboot flash recovery blah.img"
