On another forum there is a rumor the x30e LCI would be canceled, which is not a crazy theory considering the tighter range and emission demands in European countries to qualify for fiscal discounts (e.g. 60km in Germany as of 2022).
There is no magic when it comes to PHEV. More battery = higher cost / trim = more weight = more fuel consumption etc.

I just did a two-way 800mi road trip and the current x30e works great for me. 31mpg on the highway for 71mph average including stops, enough battery for electric only driving in the city where I live as everything is close by.

Not sure what an improved x3e would look like. A 40e with the x5es 24kW battery they somehow find room for and the 30is B48 engine tuning would have bad looking mpg and highway range.
