For information on this topic,
Not only B7R Volvo buses used in India have air suspensions. Not Bridgetone came up with AirShock set for any bus. Too many private bus operators have installed this. This setup is standered fitment and direct replecemrnt for leaf springs. It is not that comfertable as B7R volvos.

A lot of the newer supercars have magnetic suspension. Works on the very simple principle of like poles repelling each other. So the closer the magnets get the stiffer the suspension becomes.
