Don't like how the Chinese media are hyping it to be 'RX at half the price' because of the original Harrier-RX duo. The Harrier has not been Toyota-badge RX since the last generation. The new Harrier/Venza is more related to NX.

Agree, you must give credits to the marketing staff though!

In fact, FAW-Toyota Harrier is start promotional warm-up this weekend. It have a pre-prodution demo car will giving Guangzhou's few dealerships for tour-show next week. Dealership's words of commodity publicity is so fun.
Such as 'Porsche Cayenne like tail light' 'Lexus RX like side design' etc. 😅

So is this same PHEV will be in NX/RAV4 & Venza
Honestly Venza if had agility, it can sell well in Europe

At the Venza launch, I remember Toyota USA firmly saying there would be no Venza Prime. That makes me wonder if things have changed, or if it just won't be for the US market.
I think the normal hybrid is becoming like ICE normal
And the PHEV is the new hybrid

Maybe even Corolla/ CH-R and Corolla cross will get it

Well, Toyota Motor Europe talked about a new E3 platform (emotion, engagement and energy)

Sources:

So it would be pretty easy to have PHEV/BEV from the beginning in the next generation GA-C models.

With better results than the UX300e, I hope...

It would a missed opportunity to disallow a venza prime. But as usual its going down to battery production capacity.

With modular platforms, it should not be difficult to mix-and-match between platforms, like the ICE front end of the TNGA-C with the middle and rear components of the e-TNGA.

Didn't Toyota recently say that the next-generation Prius would be built on this new platform?
