"Electronic rock" seems to me like such a vague term as to be useless. All of the bands I see classified as electronic rock could easily fall under a different genre. Radiohead's early albums are rock and their later ones are electronic. New Order is synthpop, which is a style of pop, and not even rock. Linkin Park is nu-metal.
For the record, ambient and electronic can be subgenres of almost anything. Ambient pop, ambient metal, electronic metal, electronicore (fusion of electronic and metalcore). I think the most common ambient rock is ambient post-rock.
I will concede that ambient music is broader than just electronica. I don't agree that electronic can be a subgenre of anything. Electronic is not a subgenre, it's a genre unto itself with a lot of subgenres of its own. You can have anything be a fusion genre with electronic, maybe.
Aside from that, "ambient post-rock" is so redundant it's stupid.
