Ironically, many of the latest designs for public transit ARE proposing "mini" transit cars that are very similar to these--especially when looking at "near future" "self-driving smart cars"....They are pictured with 2-4 passengers all lined up one behind the other just like in your picture...albeit one by one rather than two by two and on paved roads rather than tracks (though magnetic strips and the like have also been proposed--"smart roads"?).

Perhaps the past version was anticipating tracks being as ubiquitous as asphalt roads? Perhaps after a certain point the individual cars would peel off and go on their merry way to individual destinations?

Still, I was struck by the similarities.
