Default any reason to use lower voltage diodes or rectifiers?

I am looking at some rectifiers for a project, and decided to use the
Vishay KBL10-E4/51

They come in various voltages from 50-1000
but besides the specification for voltage there does not appear to be any difference, and the price is the same.

why would i use a lower voltage version, in fact why do they bother making them at all?

im just curious thanks
