I see there's a new 2017 KOSMOS edition of Ingenious described as having a "plastic game board and a new graphic design" on this page:

English edition 2017

Does anyone have any more information about this, or know where that description came from?

IIRC, it was announced on Boardgame News with much the same description.

Wow, I guess I was out of the loop on this. There's a lot more about it in this news post: Following Trademark Conflict, Knizia Says Farewell to Ingenious and Introduces AXIO

That's the new, different, flagship game; Ingenious is Axio Hexagonal.

But Axio is made by a different company, is it not?
The BGG site says there will be a 2017 English version in Novemeber 2017 published by Kosmos (basically now as of my writing this). Is this actually happening? Is it just for the European market? Is Axio Hexagon the American version?

I beleive this game is the love child resulting of Knitzia's feud with Sophisticated Games. SG owning the IP to Ingenious and RK not being happy with the relationship between himself and SG, he turned to Pegasus with what is pretty much a recycled game that has been name Axio instead...

I might be totally wrong about this but I believe to have read something like this somewhere a long while ago...

Saw this new version on Amazon today with a release date of November 30. From the picture on the box, I think I am really going to like the plastic board.

EDIT: This item now says, "This item will be released on December 18, 2017."

Turns out that this item won't be made. After delays, KOSMOS will release Ingenious in 2018 with no changes.
