Auto enthusiasts are well familiar with the concept of regenerative braking, but now electricity-generating shocks may soon find their way to consumer cars. That's what Levant Power and ZF are hoping, anyway. The two have partnered up to develop "the world's first fully active, regenerative suspension" for automobiles. It will be based on the GenShock technology Massachusetts-based Levant has been showcasing for several years now, with ZF coming in to help "make it ready for volume production, and introduce it to the market." The partnership is now in place, but there's still no firm date on when you'll find a car with a regenerative suspension at your local auto dealer, however.
