Correct me if imm wrong

it is said that it needs about 20 watt to do 1 mile just using the motor. personnally i plan to pedal, not only run on battery

If you pedal normaly(medium effort) and use a little bit of power battery to help, how many watts do you need to do100 miles?

Not 20 watt (W) per mile but rather 20 watt-hour (Wh) per mile.
This number is highly dependant on many factors on of wich is speed. Past a certain speed, wind resistance (drag) becomes a significant factor, and Wh/miles consumption increases exponentially with speed.
