That is basically what the cheapest AVs will be - glorified golf carts with a bit more weather protection.

Take away the big IC engine, and substitute a bin for the big trunk, and you've more than halved the length of the car.

Once all cars on the road are computer controlled (new AVs + retrofitted older ones) you can eliminate the weight and bulk of crash protection, so you'll need an even smaller electric motor.

Maybe Tesla can buy out Elio Motors and actually get the thing into production? It's been years, and I still want one for a daily driver.

Renault Twizy: already in production in Europe. A Nissan version is available for rent as a moped in SF (Scoot).

As proven by the 'smart car', roads will have to be re-designed..  one road for mini-cars, another for trucks.. also might consider a street sweeper / forklift type vehicle that can scoop up the squashed mini-cars that were driving between trucks.. would be able to scrub the stains left on the roads..
