Several days ago, the world turned its attention to a certain monolith that seemed to have suddenly popped up in the middle of nowhere. Discovered by a group of biologists in the Utah desert, the mysterious monolith raised more questions than answers. Who put it there? Why was put it there? And why did more monoliths start popping up including one in California and even going as far as Romania?

For Jeep, they have a simple explanation for the mysterious monoliths; they're charging stations for the all-new Wrangler 4xe plug-in hybrid, possibly provided by a friendly alien civilization...Okay, so they're not really there to charge the Wrangler 4xe, but given their sleek appearance and size, Jeep decided to poke fun at the monolith by turning them into something useful, especially for their latest PHEV. Those monoliths were placed in the middle of nowhere after all. 

Being a plug-in hybrid, the Wrangler 4xe needs to have its battery pack recharged after covering several hundred kilometers. The benefit of having a remote charging station out in the middle of the desert would definitely help the SUV cover more ground, especially when exploring the great outdoors. Imagine being able to go anywhere in the 4xe and still be able to get a charge. Sounds pretty cool, but for now it's all imagination.

We may have yet to find the answer as to why the mysterious monolith was put up in the Utah desert. Hopefully, the monolith is nothing more than an ad campaign, or just an artist deciding to put it up for art's sake. But if the monolith was actually put up by aliens, maybe Jeep's claim of the Wrangler 4xe of being 'out of this world' may not be too far fetched.
