I believe that it was Steve on a Truck King YouTube post stated that there is one inch more leg room for the rear seat passengers on the Ecoboost Maverick than on the Hybrid Maverick.
Why is this? Is it that the battery location under the rear seat of the Hybrid necessitates that the rear seat bottom be constructed one inch wider? Is it that the seat is placed differently on each model? Is it that the jack and tools take up a different amount of space behind the seat back on each model? This sure is strange. Does anyone have an explanation?

The actual floorboard itself is slightly higher up so there's room for the hybrid battery (or batteries in future phev models) to reside under the floor. This is why there's less legroom per se. It's not about length or width.
Watched your vid that you ordered a base Hybrid. I will watch to see what you do with it! Keep testin!
