Clean More Powerfully
Simplify all your carpet, bare floor and whole-house cleaning with the power and suction of JetForce™ cyclonic filtration. Plus eliminate the hassle of vacuum bags once and for all with a detachable, washable, 15% larger* hourglass dust cup for added capacity. It's the total cleaning system for continuous, clog-free suction and thorough cleaning throughout the house. 

*Compared to previous Panasonic models

Cyclonic Compression for Easy Dirt Disposal
Powered by a high-efficiency 12-Amp motor, the Perform upright sends dirt, dust and debris into the hourglass dust cup where it's separated from incoming air and compressed. When full, the simple push of a button opens a bottom-drop panel for quick, clean disposal. The dust cup and chamber filter can be washed for easy maintenance.

Precision Height Adjustment 
Deep clean dirt, dust and debris from any type or style of carpet and rug with four manually adjusted height settings. Perform includes a wide, 13-in. nozzle to clean with precision balance and optimal bristle engagement. Everything you need to get the dirt you can't see to help prolong the beauty, value and life of your carpet.

Safe for Bare Floors 
This advanced floor cleaning system is also safe for all bare floor surfaces too. The simple touch of a button instantly disengages the vacuum's high-efficiency agitator to quickly and thoroughly remove dirt, dust and debris from tile, stone, wood, linoleum, laminate and other hard floor surfaces with the high-velocity JetForce™ suction.

Extend Your Reach 
Comfortably reach high ceilings and moldings, get in the crevices between appliances, behind and under furniture and beds, plus clean blinds, baseboards and stairs using the ergonomic QuickDraw II extension cleaning wand with pre-mounted dusting brush. This versatile home cleaning tool quickly deploys from the vacuum's back to extend up to 10 ft. to clean everywhere, especially hard-to-reach places. 

Remove Stubborn Pet Hair 
If you have pets, you also have pet hair on your upholstery, bedding, stairs and other places. With the on-board Pet Air Turbine Brush attachment, you'll quickly remove stubborn dog, cat and other pet hair and dirt throughout the house with the power of JetForce.™Also great for mats, seats, trunks and other spots in cars and trucks. 

HEPA Media Filtration
Filter while you clean, and maintain a healthier indoor environment for everyone with the included HEPA media filtration system. As you vacuum, this high-efficiency filter instantly eliminates tiny particles, including allergens, irritants and pollutants, from carpets and rugs, floors, furniture and interior spaces, and returns cleaner exhaust into the home.

More Conveniences
In addition to its 13-in. wide cleaning path for covering more floor area in less time, the Panasonic Perform upright provides a wider vacuuming range with a long-reach 25-ft. power cord and a distinctive profile that weighs just 18 lbs. and, when not in use, stores neatly into practically any closet or home utility space.
