Gear the motor down by 25:1 or so - with your large wheels you may even need to go higher say 70:1 as your target speed is so low. some experimentation is inevitable.

To efficiently use the torque of the motor you need to gear it down.

Now I don't understand you question.

You need to gear the 250 rpm motor down to some suitable level.

You have plenty of power to move the `150KG the electric car I linked to weighed around that and would do 30 MPH (50KPH)

If you need to go up hills then the speed will drop.

Your 7 Amphr battery will last approx 20 mins if you draw 20 amps.

By the way your question as such has a lot of variables you don't know,

The vehicle drag

the rolling resistance

The inclination of the road

all of these will effect how much power is requred to move your load.

am using 24 Volts 500 Watts motor. But an using 2 no's of 12 volt 7amps battery. (24X 7= 168 watts), it's correct (24 x 20 aph) battery.
