i think the different battery option would surely have been considered if there is a new car given 5-cell is the way JMRCA is going this year and also the bold moves being explored by some major racing bodies (ie. ROAR) regarding Lipo (and BL). should be exciting to see if and when they come out with a new tourer.
personally i just feel they will just surprise us ... and i think it will be very soon. after all, its a TC worlds year and it would be unlikely that yokomo has not put some serious thought in developing somthing in the past year/months to equip masami with the best possible gear to help get that elusive title .... masami is signed up for the TITC this year (first time ever i believe) and maybe he'll be running some prototype or near production car there given that Thailand is also the host country for this year's Worlds. ... time will tell so lets just see what happens .... very exciting!
