You might want to look at the WattsUp list of new chargers, as ZapMap fail to distinguish between slow/destination (rapid) and the various faster (ultra-rapid) chargers. WattsUp abandon the archaic nomenclature and lists power outputs.

Another way of looking at charger availability is how many fast charging stations there are on our major motorways, ignoring Tesla because not everyone can use them, and those with only two chargers because you wouldn't want to risk it. Last year on the M1 between London and the Leeds conurbation we went from 1 to 2. On the M6 up to Manchester we went from none to 3. Clearly there is still a huge amount of work to do, as only one of these is at an actual service area, but substantial progress is being made.
