|WikiProject Environment / Green vehicle||(Rated Project-class)|
Note that new stub templates should be proposed before creation at WP:WSS/P.
- Find editors who have shown interest in this subject and ask them to take a look here
- Identify articles for creation, including new production vehicles
- Create sections in existing articles about vehicles
- Tag related articles (see below)
- Identify articles for improvement and update
- Review quality of existing articles
- Expand any green vehicle articles in Category:Electric vehicle stubs
- Key articles in need of improvement: Green vehicle and Alternative fuel vehicle
- Create Green vehicle article template. What Green related sections should be in there and in what order (air pollution, fuel or energy economy, reliability, sales)
- Discuss which non-dedicated green vehicles need their own articles (for example Ford Escape Hybrid?, Toyota Camry Hybrid?)
- Extract content for articles from Wikinews:Portal:Transport and Wikinews:Portal:Category:Transport
