I found something on the web that talked about the possibility of converting to full electric. A drawing showed the battery capacity had to be double of what it currently is now. Has anyone come across the same info? Regardless, It would be nice if there was a way to double the capacity no matter what

Doubling the capacity of the current hybrid battery would get you a total of 2.2 kWh, which would maybe be enough to get you down the street. In order to squeeze 220 km of range from a 550 lb motorcycle, Harley needs to put a 15.6 kWh pack in the Livewire. Scale up a bit with weight and size, and you need 24 kWh in a Fiat 500e just to get you 160 km. The Maverick doesn't qualify as a particularly special or rare chassis to justify the cost of conversion, so you're better off waiting for Ford to produce one since they can afford to put in a 40/60/80/whatever kWh battery for much cheaper than you can.

Here is the easier path to your wish. Try to get hired by Ford and get a job in their research department. Once you are in you can submit suggestions.
