2018 BYD Tang? Lexus SUV?

I was told this is the next version of the Chinese BYD Tang plug-in SUV.
Yes, the one I posted about recently. The one Leonardo DiCaprio is advertising in China.

The current model is only about 2 years old. So that seems pretty quick for an all new one.
But it does look a lot like a Lexus. Or is it just another Chinese copy?

Lexus is coming out soon with a longer, 3 row version of the RX.
Would the longer RX be an all new model with its own design?
What is this?

Anyone here knows?

(Thats a lot of questions...)

Of course this is not a Lexus. Look at the badge on the grille...and even the grille itself (it does not fit their current design theme besides maybe the shape)

Not ugly enough to be a Toyota or Lexus.

Here's why I think it's a next-gen Toyota Rav-4. The grill styling is consistent with the current Highlander and the new Camry. Also, an actual redesign now makes sense as Toyota finally has a brand new platform for the first time in a couple decades and it's modular so it can underpin everything from a compact car to a larger mid-sized crossover.
Does it look like a Lexus knock-off? Yes. But Toyota is known for ripping off it's own designs for it's high-volume vehicles.

This is a BYD concept car designed by Wolfgang Egger.
