If they don't manage to build the iX5 on the current architecture (i.e., not another iX3), they might pull another no-LCI cycle to fast-track the iX5. There's no indication of that happening so far though, AFAIK.
I doubt it, base on ynguldyn info it sounds like the the iNext is being positioned at the x5 level.

For customers at that price level (at least for the time being as Evs continue to ramp) consumers will likely prefer a stand out unique vehicle vs a "plain" X5. It will make more sense to take the learnings from that program and incorporate into a next gen x5 on the usual lifecycle.
