Is there a reason to use SVG when not in need scaling "up" an image?

I talked to a programmer. He said it was absolutely neccessary to use SVG for all graphic elements on a web-page for best result. I I have a jpg image that does not need to scale up (that is about 500px width and 200px height). It would only have to scale down when coming to mobile devices. Would replacing this jpg with svg do any effect? Would it really be better?

There is absolutely no need to use svg in all images. SVG is a vector format, best suitable for icons or other relatively simple images.
