Thanks for replying!
There is already an "Alternative fuel vehicles" subsection under the "General" section, listed just beneath "General Discussion".
Lawrence's view is that this "Alternative fuel vehicles" subsection does not have enough visibility or attraction because it lists startup electric vehicle makers and models, low-speed electric vehicle makers and models, and electric commercial vehicle makers all lumped together, without proper arrangement, which makes it difficult for visitors to find out about the new startup electric vehicle makers (i.e. New Energy Vehicle Manufactures) such as Tesla, Nio, Weltmeister, Bordrin, Byton, Xiaopeng, Hozon, Aiways, NEVS, Lixiang, Leapmotor, etc. unless they wade through a mass of threads. It would be better if there could be a new main section "New Energy Vehicles" or some such heading (we can decide on that) located after "Foreign/Chinese Joint Venture Car Manufacturers" and above "Other China Motor Vehicles". Also some prominent manufacturers should be nested under this new section, appearing on the main page, the list of which we can decide on later.
So it should appear something like:
"New Energy Vehicle & Connected Vehicle Manufacturers"
then beneath it child forums (sub-forums):
(this list is just indicative)
The "Alternative fuel vehicles" subsection which exists the "General" section can then be used for just the less prominent (read ordinary or not-so-high-tech) electric vehicle makers or low-speed electric makers.
Another way is to promote the "Alternative fuel vehicles" subsection to a main section, rename it to "New Energy Vehicle & Connected Vehicle Manufacturers", have the nested list of prominent manufacturers under it on the main page, as shown above, and use the last child forum "Other" to park threads for the residual manufacturers.
