A spokesman for the firm said: 'We are having discussions concerning when and if the car comes to Britain, determined by what the price will be.' Once discussions over the price of the flagship have been completed, it is expected to arrive with a 180bhp 3.0-litre V6 and a 160bhp 2.5-litre V6 engine.
In the UK, the company has so far enjoyed a vintage year, which is why it is concerned to see the XG succeed through aggressive pricing. Total sales so far this year are 23,065, up from 21,359 at the end of September last year. Fleet business has grown from about 35% of sales to 38%, helped by the new Sonata and the Coupe's popularity among user-choosers.
