Object-oriented Python, Dice roller, Giving a Hand (MRO). Need help understanding teacher's notes.

In the videos' teacher's notes, Kenneth explains the use of the die_count() argument, after that, there is an example that explains it more.

I did understand that we can use Classes as an argument, however, I did NOT understand the example that was showed there. Like what is the purpose of the function:

def vehicle_factory(cls, count):
    for _ in range(count):
        yield cls()

The document said that this function is used to create as many instances as we want, but I don't totally understand what that means.

Here is the link to that video.
