    understanding an interview

    Hello, everybody!
    I didn't really know where to post this thread but hope it fits in here.
    Be so kind to tell me if I understand correctly what is implied in these fragments of an interview:
    https://youtu.be/vDwzmJpI4io?t=1912


    SAL: Well out here they [ they = the news reporters? ] seem like you know every ... [ like, you know, you sell 12000 cars every month? ]
    ELON: Yeah but this is our home team you know [ does he refer to the team of people in his own company whom he works with? I can't understand. ]

    Any help is highly appreciated!

    No, electric cars.

    I don't know where this bit is. Can you tell us at what point in the video he says that?
    I did hear "... we sell 5000 a quarter" at around 32:18.

    He did say that. However, I think he meant to say "home territory" instead.

    He says it at 32:20. The thing is, his sentence goes:
    - Well out here they seem like you know every ...
    So I'm trying to guess how that sentence was supposed be finished to understand fully the meaning of it.
    And my guess was the next one: like, you know (you sell 12000 cars) every month.

    What he says is unclear. He starts to say something but he doesn't finish it.
