If you have a model equipped with the heat pump option, turn on your heat (auto is fine) and adjust the temp upward until the heat is commanded on. Then check under the hood and verify that your A/C (heat pump) compressor is running. You will be able to determine that by the noise it makes, and touch the high pressure discharge line to feel that it is warm/hot (it is the silver pipe just behind the motor, to the right (standing in front), and it passes through the firewall between the motor and steering column. It's easy to see and touch, nothing is in the way. Also let me know what temp you selected, and what the outside air temp was at the time per your vehicle display by the odometer.
2016 Soul EV+, recently received warranty rebuilt battery pack and all current firmware updates.
Outside temp, 5c
Heater on at 22.5c
Drove 15 mins on highway at 115km/h.
Upon arrival, no compressor running, and pipes into cab are all cold.
I am pretty sure I've never heard my compressor running if A/C wasn't engaged, however.
