ELC, If it senses that the rear suspension is compressed beyond a certain point for a certain period of time it uses a small compressor to "pump up" the rear struts. The pump motor can also be used via a valve to inflate basketballs and the like.

It is standard with the SSEi top of the line models.

It uses air shocks in the rear only to maintain a level ride and keep it off the bump stops with heavy loads. There is also a connection in the trunk for pumping up things like rubber mattresses, tires, etc....

Tricking it will pump up the rearend so it transfers a little more weight over the front wheels and looks cool. :P
