LM Star used technology sourced from Dadi Auto of China through a joint venture.
The cars, assembled locally by Johor-based LM Star Autoworld Sdn Bhd, offer 50% fuel savings with a new technology called hydroxene (processing canister where water is broken into hydrogen and oxygen) which was developed by a local scientist.

LM Star president Abdul Uza Sheikh Mohamad told a press conference that in the initial stage, two models using the hydroxene technology would be open for booking within 10 days.

“We expect the cars to be on the street within the next two months,” Abdul Uza said, adding that the seven-seater SUV LMG Tourer was priced at RM58,888 and the four-door crew-cab LMG Trekker at RM84,888. Both models come with 2.4-litre engines.
