I wish I could tell you!
I know the first Panasonic upright was about 1968ish and was much like the Regina brush n beat upright. about 1980ish was when they really got into the vacuum market with their first clean air uprights and I think some of those were called jet flo, as for when the jet flo ended. I don't remember them after the mid 90's but I could be very wrong on this. Hopefully someone with some actual Panasonic knowledge will chime in.

I think you’d be able to determine the start date for Panasonic Jet-Flo uprights from the date Hoover sold their Dial-a-Matic patent to it’s parent company Matsushita of Japan. If I remember correctly, this was in the mid-1970’s. By that time, the Japanese company had already started selling uprights and canisters in North America - though in very limited numbers. But the purchase of the DAM patent really launched their successful position in North America’s floor care market.
