Mazda i-ELOOP Brake Energy Regeneration System Regenerative braking systems, which convert kinetic energy from a slowing car into electricity, are nothing new. However, until until now, they have been reserved for hybrid and electric vehicles. Now, Mazda has introduced the world’s first regenerative braking system built for cars with a standard combustion engine, generating electricity that can be used for things like air conditioning and audio without burning extra fuel.
