The Cluster Architecture (CLAR) platform is a car platform developed by BMW.

It is a modular platform that incorporates steel, aluminium, and carbon fibre.[1] It is available with rear-wheel drive or all-wheel drive setups and debuted in the G11 7 Series in 2015.[2] It is designed to accommodate a plug-in hybrid and fully electric drivetrain and has a 48-volt electrical system.[3]

It was initially called 35up but was later renamed to CLAR.[4]
