The announcement says the e-visas will make crossing the border easier and that the application process, through the Labor Ministry’s website, will be the same as it is for paper visas.
It says travelers can apply online for tourist visas, express tourist visas and business visas

Nope, no way a vehicle can enter Myanmar except on a tour. Entering India is more straightforward, but reportedly requires a carnet.

Yes that's what I just said. You need a tour. What you have described is a tour - it involves getting a permit and guide. Incidentally, a separate car is not necessary for Myanmar, if there's room inside your vehicle for the two guides that will be accompanying you. One guide is from the travel agency and the second one from the government's Ministry of Hotels and Tourism.
