Designed with user experience in mind, MAKO Design built the CNCT to match perfectly, in terms of quality, aesthetics, and functionality, with the Tesla Model 3 vehicle. The uniquely shaped CNCT slides perfectly in the rear trunk. This rotomolded hard cooler holds up to 17 liters of your favorite foods and drinks. The lid is fully detachable and locks on the top edge of the cooler. As for the finish, the metallic handles contrast sharply against the smooth and familiar Tesla red exterior. And just like the doors on the Tesla, the handles elegantly eject from the cooler with a simple press.
