As it is loss it shud be taken to P&L as usual.

To Loss on sale of Car A/c          150000

Treatment as per Income tax act

If there is no other asset in the  Block of asset of which  the car  is a part , it can be claimed as a business expenditure. If there is any other asset in the car block then only depreciation can be claimed.

For loss of asset by theft, you have to credit the asset account and debit "Loss by theft" account with the book value of the asset lost. You can claim this as a deduction while calculating profits as per income tax.
