On my Maxx if plugged in with the charge completed ( for example I tend to charge between 00.30 and 04.30), if remote heating is activated it starts to charge pulling around 7kwh from my wall charger.

I don't have a Soul EV yet but would guess that if the charger is off then it would use the main battery.
Can you check the charger status, separate from the car, to see if it's operating during the preheat process?
Are you looking at getting the Soul EV?

That’s useful info. I didn’t realise that for scheduled heating to work it needed to be plugged in.
I tend to use the app and activate mine and not use scheduled heating.
So, I guess the remote heating activation just engages the 12v battery unless the car is plugged in, in which case the HV engages and charges the 12v, and for scheduled climate it needs to be plugged in.
I’ve noticed that when i activate remote climate, if the car is plugged in it starts to draw from the charger, which makes sense. I suppose if the 12v was low remote climate either wouldn’t work or would drain the 12v if not plugged in?
