If its an original 2006 T2 Xray, then no it wont fit properly under the bulk heads. The most I have ever seen in the car was a TP 4900 (137mm x 46mm x 23mm). It was a tight fit, had to grind away at the bulk head to allow it to fit. They battery you are suggesting has a height of 27mm.

If you dont car about how far the pack is hanging out the side, make a brace for it, and mount the half way off the chassis. It will allow for better left/right balance of the car wiithout adding any extra weight.
