2022 Miscellaneous Highlights​

The total of 18 new UK sites equals the record set in 2021, and 219 new live bays beats the previous record of 192 set in 2020.
In September Tesla celebrated reaching 1,000 supercharger stalls in the UK + Ireland combined; by the end of 2022 there were over 1,000 stalls in the UK alone at over 100 sites.
Belfast became the first supercharger in Northern Ireland, the most northerly and easterly on the island of Ireland and the most westerly UK site (Camborne remains the most westerly in mainland Britain).
Wales added one more supercharger at Newport but there were no new sites in Scotland (Edinburgh Newbridge was expanded): the most northerly new site added in mainland Britain was Harrogate. Norwich - East became the most easterly UK supercharger.
Manchester - Trafford Centre is now the largest V3 site with 18 stalls; London - Westfield (24 V2 stalls) and Heathrow - Terminal 5 (16 V2 + 8 V3 stalls) remain the largest sites overall.
16 UK sites are now open to non-Tesla's (but none in Ireland).

Three new sites in 2022 is also a calendar year record for the Republic of Ireland.
Enfield is now the largest V3 site with 6 stalls (Ireland has four V2 sites with 8 stalls).

2022 Review of Tesla's UK "Coming Soon" Pins​

Of the 18 new sites, 16 had corresponding "Coming Soon" markers. Most opened "on schedule" although some had dates pushed back during the year; Nottingham - Victoria Centre, Ferrybridge and Winchester opened in the first week of April (only just missing their Q1 2022 target opening dates) while the Heathrow Terminal 2 & 3 marker was refreshed shortly before it opened in Q4 with an out-of-date Q2 2022 target date.

By the end of the year, 6 markers with a target opening of Q4 2022 had not made it: Newark is under construction but nothing has been spotted in the vicinity of Carmarthen, Glasgow Service Centre, Merry Hill, Reading or Swansea.
In addition Gridserve Gatwick Airport (according to Gridserve press release) and Leigh Delamere Westbound were under construction but don't have a corresponding Tesla marker. A marker for Fleet was removed but activity at Fleet southbound is thought to indicate the stalls constructed in 2017 will finally be commissioned in 2023, along with removal of 4 uncommissioned stalls on the northbound side.

At the start of the year there were 24 "Coming Soon" markers. After updates (primarily quarterly) and site openings the total had increased to 51 by the end of the year. Not all markers appeared on Tesla's interactive map at year end but a marker has been counted if a Tesla web link still existed.
The initial 24 markers had a target date at some point in 2022; of these 7 became live sites, 7 had dates pushed back, and 10 were removed. Following the first quarterly update in February there were 35 markers with 2022 target dates of which 12 opened by year end, 9 had dates pushed into 2023 or later, and 14 were removed before year end.

New markers added in 2022 that were still present at year end (44 in total):
Basingstoke; Beaconsfield; Birch (Middleton422); Brighton (30525); Bristol - Filton; Bristol East; Bromley; Brora; Cannock; Cardiff; Carmarthen; Coventry; Dorking; Faversham; Glasgow; Guildford; Guildford (28501); Ipswich; London; London - Chiswick; London - Edmonton; London - Hendon; London Colney; Merry Hill; Newark; Newcastle - North East; Northampton; Penrith - Tebay Northbound; Peterborough; Portsmouth - Port Solent; Rainham; Sheffield; Stevenage; Swansea (q222); Swindon; Old Trafford; Tamworth; Taunton (16476); Thurrock; Wakefield; Wimbledon; Winchester Northbound; Winchester Southbound; Windsor.
Construction is known to be underway at three of these: Dorking, Guildford (28501) and London (Heston Eastbound).

Markers removed in 2022 (16 in total):
Bournemouth; Brighton Station*; East Leeds; Ferndown; Hull; Kettering; Leavesden; Leeds West; Liverpool*; Milton Keynes; Newquay; Norwich; Rownhams; Swansea (q122)*; Todhills (Moto) Southbound; Watford.
*Brighton, Liverpool and Swansea have alternative markers in their vicinity.

Three "coming soon" markers located at existing sites were also removed: Banbury, Fleet and Grantham.
