Unfortunately the real answer is "that depends" (on things like form factors and packaging). "Yes" is more likely
than "no", but not guaranteed.
On the bright side, if there is enough demand, even if new higher-density packs don't "fit well" in early-201x designs by late 201x or 202x, you would probably be able to swap out the pack for a similar-capacity, much-lighter-weight pack. Dropping 250+ lbs from the overall weight would improve performance and mileage (both e- and petrol-).
