    Hopefully I'm not reposting this, but I think this is new with the 72 kW "urban Supercharger" announcement.

    Based on Tesla's map, it looks like the 2018 additions/changes are:

    Novi
    Detroit
    Swartz Creek (near Flint)
    Claire
    Mackinaw City
    Gaylord (Grayling for 2017 seems to have been removed)
    Escanaba (U.P.)

    When is the one in Lansing opening up? I'm leaving Virginia and headed up there in 2 weeks for the MSU Homecoming game. It would nice to use an SC on this trip. Hope the one in Claire is close to "Cops N Donuts"!!

    Likely within the next couple of weeks. Check out this thread for progress: Supercharger - Lansing Michigan

    There is an 80a wall connector in a parking garage right next to the Supercharger if it's not operational yet - check out Plugshare.

    It's awesome to see them finally plan one in the UP and it will make driving to see family much easier. Hopefully it will also encourage more general EV infrastructure too.

    Very pleased to see the Mackinaw City location. This will make trips to the island a breeze as there really aren't that many public charging options in that area.

    I'm also glad to see a location in the Flint area, but I am concerned that Tesla has selected the wrong Meijer location. The Swartz Creek store is out of the way for north/south travel on I-75 & US-23, which is a much more heavily traveled route than I-69. They should instead be targeting the Hill Rd. location off US-23, which is more convenient for north/south traffic and still only a short detour for I-69 traffic.

    I'd love to see Tesla move one of the near Detroit locations and put it in Allen Park. There is a Meijer there (on the hill) and the benefit of that location is that it's very close to M39 (Southfield Fwy), I94 and I75. There are tons of shops and places to eat there as well. it would be a great location. The Meijer already has a couple L2 chargers there, but Supercharing would be much better. Besides the parking lot is enormous so there's plenty of room.

    It'd be nice if all Meijer stores had superchargers haha. Sterling Heights Meijer is on 16 mile and Van Dyke, one of the biggest intersections in the county, and a minute away from home. I've emailed Tesla and recommended the location for future charging.

    Anywhere in Sterling Heights would be great. My wife's family lives out there and we frequently head back there.

    I guess you can add Big Rapids and Muskegon to the list. I'm impressed with the number of Superchargers Michigan is getting!

    I've heard rumors of the Muskegon supercharger. Anyone know where the planned location is? The Meijer at 31 and 96?

    NVM - found the answer and pictures. Exactly where I expected it. This is a good thing!

    This website will keep you informed, even more so than the Tesla one:

    The move from Grayling to Gaylord really bums me out. Gaylord does make a lot more sense, due to size of the city, but Grayling is the turning point for a lot of traverse city traffic.

    Any word on why the change?

    Correct. But there never has been a Meijer there. Makes sense, just wonder why they put it there in the first place.

    So down the road Alpena might get one? Would prefer Tawas area or Oscoda, but no Meijer there.

    I wouldn't rule out cities just because they don't have a Meijer. Clare and Mackinaw City don't, and they are on the 2018 list. Novi could be as well, but it will probably be at the Wixom Meijer.

    Neither Marshall nor Lansing are located at a Meijer and those were both opened this year. Certainly Tesla does have a very good working relationship with Meijer and it's nice to know that you'll be able to find a restroom if you happen to roll in at 3AM. But there's nothing at all saying that Tesla only opens the Michigan locations at a Meijer.
