The Tolocar Van, one of five mobile makerspaces launched in Ukraine in 2022

The Van which was equipped by InMachines and launched in October 2022 is a compact yet powerful hub of innovation on wheels. The van is small enough to be used with ease in cities, powerful enough to drive long distances faster and more comfortably than the truck, and robust enough to manage any road condition in any weather. Its self-sufficient power supply offers the flexibility to operate anywhere, even in remote locations. The van comes outfitted with an array of cutting-edge machinery, electronic laboratory tools, and a comprehensively equipped workshop.
