The designers may call this "not a car" - but if it is driven on roads and streets (as opposed to say golf courses or your back 40) it will have to meet the same sets of rules that apply to Ford 150s, Teslas and Toyota Camrys.

Not necessarily.
Those same roads have lots of motorcycles and other vehicles on them that do not meet the same set of rules that apply to pickups and sedans.
And there are rules in the US for LSV (low speed vehicles) and NEV (neighborhood electric vehicle).

But I'm guessing it is intended to go faster than 25mph - and if it does, I believe it will have to meet the same rules as a sedan.

The door at the front of the vehicle reminds me of a BMW Isetta.
