NEW: 8 bays under construction at Old Thorns Hotel just off the A3 at Liphook
Looks like they've added more stations to the map, including Brighton etc...
I wonder if these are the new "Urban Superchargers" (72kw ones) - this would be in line with the comment that they are going to push for 40 new superchargers in the UK by the end of 2018 (probably mostly urban/city ones). Still, it's all good news.
The extension at Darts Farm is now OPEN
Fleet services today - looking close! Lord knows the south east could use some Supercharger love. Cobham services on M25 would be awesome...
They've been like that for ages. Someone on the FB group who doesn't want to reveal his source says they will be opening some time this week.
Definitely need something at Cobham or Gatwick or both. Also now the one is gone from M3 Sainsbury's does anyone one know what's happening down that stretch of the M3
Fleet Services West/Southbound Construction started (Supercharger Info)
(Fleet Services East/Northbound still showing as Construction)
A new one at Aviemore opened this morning.
McDonalds Highland Hotel.
Not on Tesla's website as yet ... that caused me to do a recce:
Tesla site is showing some as "Coming soon" which were not there "some time ago" (can't remember when I took my previous copy)
Supercharger Info has the follow as in construction ... are the really old ones real?

I think the old ones, e.g. Crawley, are probably better described as inspirational rather than real.
The new ones, e.g Ipswich and Brighton have a target date of end of 2018 so I’m taking the whole shooting match as inspirational until groundworks and boxes are reported on site somewhere
There’s no doubt they are ramping up the installations, and not just here, Europe is seeing an expansion too.
It’s very frustrating when a site seems complete, e.g. Fleet north has looked ready for pretty much the whole summer and was rumoured to go live last week. It didn’t.
Mind you it’s not just Tesla. There’s a new Chargemaster/Polar two post installation near me that is showing as live on the map, but has been fenced off for least the last two months. My enquiries as to what the hold up is has drawn a blank.
Exciting times though!
Yes, the "new for 2018" pins appeared two weeks ago. I keep a watch on stuff up north and pins in the Perth and Stirling area have appeared in the past (at one time Tesla kept it vague by just showing them on maps but now they attribute specific locations to each pin) so as DJP31 says they could just be an aspiration. Note also that the extra Birmingham "coming soon" pin disappeared after the Hopwood Park expansion came online.
Yes: all of the sites under construction on supercharge.info are real - photos of each site have been posted on the Supercharger app. At present they haven't added Liphook although I'm sure they have been provided with the location information. Delays are apparently related to getting connection to the grid and/or agreeing wayleaves with landowners.
Stoke-on-Trent - Northbound appears to have 6 of 8 chargers live (a few people have posted photos of their cars charging) although at time of writing it isn't appearing on the in-car Nav or Tesla.com. Tesla.com is lagging behind a bit - usually they update the website within a few hours of a site going live but Aviemore isn't on there yet despite appearing on the Nav yesterday morning.
Usually the nav is the most accurate source; tesla.com seems to get updated manually and is often a few days behind. Forums/supercharge.info can sometimes be optimistic: there have been cases of people successfully getting a charge and declaring it "open" while not officially shown, when in fact Tesla was still testing and ended up switching everything off again because some detail was not right.
Stoke-on-Trent Northbound (Keele services) appears to be live now on Tesla.com - finally! 8 bays
Sounds like Telford now open?
Inverness is no longer showing (on Tesla site) as "Coming soon"
I guess the McDonald hotel is that one.
Didn't think of that, thanks. That's a bit like Ryanair's idea of where an airport is!
Now in Supercharger Info
Old Thorns Manor Hotel, Liphook A3 Construction
Supercharger Info showing as Open and now also on the Tesla website
Tebay Southbound Supercharger, Penrith OPEN (Supercharger Info and Tesla Website)
M6 J39-J38. 8 Superchargers
HULL!!!! Amazing if that's true. However, when you zoom in on the pin it looks to be in someones house in a heavily populated residential area! So I'm guessing they've not finalised the location yet......roll on 2018!
